I am a consumer, not a restaurant operator. I had bought some inexpensive steak knives at a major discount big box store some time back, and I liked them. I went back to buy more, but the knives I saw were different, and I didn’t like the new style. The more I shopped, the more disgusted I became with the knives in the stores; they were either ridiculously expensive or cheap junk. After lots of searching online, I settled on picking from the excellent selection from Food Service Warehouse. After looking at all the knives and reading the reviews, I choose this Walco 680527. Once I received them I couldn’t have been happier. These knives look great, are very sharp; the blades are mirror smooth, so they cut easily and clean up easily. These knives are not as large, or as fancy looking as the steak knives sold in stores, but that is fine; they are a good size for small or large hands, look nice, and cut steaks well. The picture on this page doesn’t do these knives justice, they look great on my table. I only really needed six knives, but at this price, this was still cheaper than a set of six knives for $40. or $50. at many stores.
I am absolutely disappointed with this order. The picture looks so much better than the product. Hopefully my order can be returned and my money refunded.
These are the pattern I use in my restaurant, so I knew what I was getting. Although the flatware itself was not damaged, the boxes they came in were badly mangled. I had to do major taping just to store them on my shelves.
I discovered this pattern at a restaurant on the Oregon coast and knew it was what I wanted to have at home. Found the pattern at FSW, placed the order, received prompt service and shipping and am delighted with the purchase...and the price! The place settings are well made and very attractive. Thanks!
Great product, saw it at my weekend at The Allison Resort and Spa in Portland and has to have it, extremely durable and attractive
These flatware patterns are cold forged in a handmade process, making them heavy-duty flatware with a completely unique feel. Also, the handles on the forks and spoons are slightly longer than traditional flatware pieces, for a much better grip.Walco Hallmark Handmade Collection
These flatware pieces have the look and elegance of silver, but are actually made using 18% chrome and 10% nickel, making it virtually maintenance free and durable. This collection includes modern design as well as timeless classics.Walco Hallmark 2000 Collection
