First available in March of 2009, this set marks the entry of Fiesta Dinnerware into the world of cutlery. Manufactured by the Homer Laughlin China Company, in partnership with Cambridge Silversmiths, the assortment of knives comes in a wide variety of handle color choices and matching hardwood knife blocks.
The eight knives in the set are forged from high carbon stainless steel and built with solid steel bolsters and heels. The colorful Softgrip handles completely enclose the tangs in a comfortable shape designed to increase grip safety and lessen hand fatigue. Each set includes an eight-inch chef’s knife, carving knife, bread knife, and a seven-inch santoku. Smaller knives range from a 6-inch utility knife to a 5-1/2-inch boning knife and both 3 and 4-inch paring knives. Matching honing steel and kitchen shears complete the list of tools. The knives are dishwasher safe, but the best way to keep finish and edges in good condition is to wash by hand.
The distinctive disc of the Fiesta-style wood knife block resembles the shape and pattern of the Fiesta pitcher. On the front of the block, an engraved stainless steel plate shows the Fiesta Dancing Lady logo. Each color theme uses a wood stain to match the block to the knife handles without disguising the beauty of the natural wood grain. Colors include scarlet, tangerine, sunflower, cobalt, peacock, and chocolate. A final choice offers knives with ebony black handles and a naturally finished hardwood knife block.
