When choosing cutlery, there are various points to consider, including not only the material, but also the intended use and design. Konohino Uguten, an online cutlery shop, explains the key points in choosing cutlery and the appeal of brass cutlery.
Cutlery is a general term for knives, forks, spoons, etc. that are used at the dining table, and they come in a variety of materials and designs. Let's take a closer look at what you should pay attention to when choosing cutlery.
We will also introduce the appeal of brass cutlery, which has a classic texture.
Select by type
There are a wide variety of cutlery depending on the purpose. Looking at knives alone, there are different types depending on their purpose, such as table knives, fish knives used when cooking fish, dessert knives, and butter knives. Regarding forks, in addition to table forks, which are mainly used for meat dishes, there are forks of different sizes, such as fish forks and cake forks.
As there are so many types of cutlery, it may not be realistic to have all of them at home. When it comes to cutlery for your home, you can stock five types of cutlery: dessert forks, dessert knives, dessert spoons, teaspoons, and cake forks, so you can use them universally for main dishes, appetizers, and desserts.
Choose by design
There are two types of cutlery designs: classic and modern. Many of the classic cutlery have curved carvings, making them perfect for when you want to create a gorgeous look on your dining table. On the other hand, modern cutlery is versatile and can be matched with any design of plates.
Cutlery is something you use every day, so choosing one with your favorite design will add color to your daily dining table.
Choose by material
Cutlery materials include stainless steel, silver, wood, and brass. Stainless steel is a material often used in households because it requires little maintenance and is highly durable. However, some people may feel that it is lacking in originality and texture compared to other materials.
Silver and brass cutlery require some maintenance, but the luxurious feel of silver, the classic texture of brass, and the aging that appears over time are very attractive.
The charm of brass cutlery
Brass cutlery has a soft texture that is not found in other materials, and as it is used, it develops a unique flavor. The appeal of brass cutlery is that you can enjoy its changes over time, or you can "grow" it.
After using brass cutlery, wash it with a mild kitchen detergent and wipe it dry like you would any other tableware. Just by removing the moisture, an oxide film will form on the surface of the cutlery, creating a unique and beautiful atmosphere. No two pieces are the same, and the more you use it, the more you will enjoy the process of changing to a unique texture.
The cutlery at Konohino Dogu Store is selected by cutlery artist Hiro Kashihara, based on the concept of ``cutlery that grows'', so that you can enjoy aging. Brass cutlery, which changes color as you use and care for it, is not just a tool, but a work of art.
