Well, you've got to watch Deep Red/Profondo Rosso. (Don't wanna ruin the ending...)

knives by MKS design (a company founded by Adam Simha based in Cambridge, MA--they mostly make modern furniture out of steel)

I couldn't get the pictures off the site but I think they're worth looking at... the handles seem very utilitarian and they seem sort of "manly"...
more like something i would find in my dad's toolbox than my mother's kitchen :p

Toni Grilo for Christofile did some very untraditional and interesting things with cutlery/flatware... whatever you want to call it

Spoon Bowl: Only 20 were made
Quote:
In his 2006 ĎFromí collection, Toni Grilo, the 28 year-old Franco-Portuguese artist audaciously reinterpreted the creations of the great Parisien silversmith, Christofle Ė turning knives and forks into works of art. Produced in Christofleís ĎHaute OrfŤvrerieí workshops from 30 silver-plated Christofle spoons, this surprising but apparently effortless piece is one of the collectionís most charming. You canít help feeling that the illustrious role call of Christofleís historic clients (King Louis-Philippe, Napoleon III, the Tsar of Russia, the Emperor of Mexico, Pope Pius IX among them) would have approved.

The Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum held an exhibition last year entitled "Feeding Desire: Design and the Tools of the Table, 1500 - 2005."

The exhibition website is very informative, you should check it out and here's a taste of what you might find:

Forks, knives, and spoons from a flatware set. Made by Claude Lalanne (b. 1925). France, 1966. Silver.

so cool!!
those photos are fantastic
thanks for posting them dos

i love how different they are...
it's nice to see "old" and romantic looking pieces when the focus is often on the new, sleek and ultra-modern look...

the utensils you posted have a lot of character and i like that..
beautiful!
