well made: David Mellor 'London' steak knife

I was given these beautifully made David Mellor steak knives as birthday gift a few years back and although they're not used on a regular basis it always feels like a bit of a treat when they are. Mellor is renowned for his metalwork and specifically his cutlery designs, so as you might expect the knives are perfectly weighted and expertly sculpted for comfort of use. All Mellor's flatware is manufactured at The Round Building, an award wining purpose built modern factory with attached shop, cafe and design museum in the Peak District National Park. For a full range of David Mellor products visit the website here. The online shop is also worth checking out for the well chosen selection of tableware and accessories from other designers
