Considering the Japanese eat using Western cutlery only on special occasions or with certain types of meals, it's amazing that they would come up with something so incredibly stylish like the Zikico Kiyo Cutlery Set. But they did and the truth is you couldn't ask for an approach to the three basic cutlery items (spoon, fork, and knife) that is more elegant, simpler, and more functional. As a matter of fact, it might be easy to mistake these beautiful items for modern sculpture instead of everyday eating utensils!
But the Zikico Kiyo Cutlery Set's exquisite design, which comes in an amazing black or white finish, isn't the whole story. Another unique thing about these three items is that they are made of zirconia, a crystalline material used for producing very hard ceramics. Yes, this means that the spoon, fork, and knife in this set are very hard, almost to the point of being brittle. The upside, though, is that unlike metallic cutlery, they don't transfer any odor or flavor to the food, allowing you to enjoy your meal in its purest form!
