Flatwear[edit]

Currently a big mess of random junk (and one really nice stolen Reed & Barton 18/10 stainless spoon).

My parents always had decent Oneida 'Flight' 18/10 stainless; Oneida ditched its US manufacturing in 2005, and my parents' design is one that's now only available in 18/0 from China. The 'Moda', 'Lagen', and other designs are still available 18/10, but it's all from China. I don't think so.

Steel quality is important. I'd like to buy American, 18/10 stainless, heavy enough to withstand ice cream scooping, in a simple unadorned design that's easy to clean. This is a tall order, but I found a match: Revolution flatware, manufactured with Sherrill steel in central New York. Silver Superstore (an online retailer based in Kent, WA) was actually responsible for helping this US manufacturer out of bankruptcy, so I'll be buying from them!
