5 Myths about Buying Handmade Flatware for Your Table

Jun 24, 2021admin

You’ve always loved the artisan finished touch that handcrafted flatware brings to the table. So, why the hesitation about choosing artisan flatware for your own table?

Most people think that hand forged flatware is unaffordable or a high maintenance investment. And most people are wrong!

Are you letting misconceptions get in the way of having the table setting of your dreams?

We’ve put together some myths and real facts about handcrafted flatware:

Myth #1: My family’s eating style leans towards grabbing a bite to eat in the kitchen rather than dining and entertaining friends and family. So, the traditional style of handcrafted flatware sets aren’t the right fit for our lifestyle.

Fact: Our stainless steel flatware selection has something for every lifestyle. Whether you’re looking for a modern minimalist look or something to go with your urban industrial decor, our designs will help inspire a table setting tailored to your tastes and dining style.

Myth #2: Copper flatware sets are so beautiful, but I don’t have a lot of time for washing dishes by hand after every meal.

Fact: Our copper flatware, nascent stainless steel and hammered flatware sets are as practical as they are pleasing to the eye. They can be loaded into the dishwasher along with your other dishes. We don’t recommend lemon scented or harsh detergents, since they can corrode stainless steel.

Myth #3: I’ve heard that buying handcrafted flatware is costly. I’d rather spend money on contemporary dinnerware and pay less for flatware. After all, most people don’t pay much attention to the silverware.

Fact: Whether we like it or not, the first thing dinner guests notice is the table setting. Before the food makes its debut, having the right tableware will make a lasting impression and set the mood. Our heirloom-quality flatware sets offer a lifetime of use for everyday dining and special occasions. What’s more, our prices are comparable to many stainless steel flatware manufacturers.

Myth #4: Artisans are just hobbyists, aren’t they? I prefer buying flatware from mainstream manufacturers, you know…big name professionals.

Fact: Our artisans come from an ancient place in Northern India, with a rich history in metallic handicrafts. Many of these talented people are third and fourth generation hand forgers who spend hours honing the skills that make them the best at their craft.

Myth #5: Sure, handmade flatware is stunning but I doubt they have many designs to choose from.

Fact: At Inox Artisans, we’re always growing our pattern selections. Our artisans love to create unique designs with distinctive features and finishes to make your table look its best. We strive to create handcrafted pieces our customers will cherish for years to come. Many of our specialty serving sets and complementary designs make welcome wedding and housewarming gifts.

We hope these myth-busting facts have shown that buying handmade flatware for your table is an affordable, pleasurable way to set your table setting apart from the rest.
