Medieval Set of Eating Utensils
Click to Review
Olde English Bokes Of Curtesye (Books of Courtesy) admonished readers not to spit across the table, butter bread with their thumbs, or wipe their teeth and knives on the tablecloth! Still, uncouthness often reigned, even at a noble's table. Utensils like these were used from the early Iron Age to the Middle Ages and had to compete with the convenience of fingers. The handle for each hand-forged piece is given the traditional blacksmith's twist and the knife is capable of holding an edge.
- Overall: Approx. 8" long each
- Wt: 8 oz.

Set is beautiful. Treat it as you would a cast iron pan, and it looks like these utensils will last a very long time.
