The Folke Deluxe 16pce Cutlery set is a retro design classic. It was first released in 1955, and was  the first stainless steel cutlery with nylon handles. The unique triangular knife blade, curtailed fork, and narrow spoon all contribute to its modernist design credentials...and assist healthy eating practices. Yes this cutlery can help prevent obesity.

 

The set is by Swedish flatware legends Gense. The set's name comes from designer Folke Arstrom, who was Gense's head designer from 1940 to 1960. He began his working life as a painter, but his Folke Deluxe Cutlery set is much more useful for dealing with meat and three veg.

 

Legend has it that Princess Grace of Monaco bought a set of this cutlery on a trip to Sweden. It may not be true, but like the urban myth of Richard Gere and the gerbil, plausibility is everything. This truly is a cutlery set appropriate for a princess (or prince).
