Aston Flatware Place Setting

From the studio of Robert Welch, one of Britain's leading houseware designers, Aston flatware evokes traditional style with its understated, subtle elegance. Inspired by classic flatware patterns, the pieces features a delicate raised band that outlines the graceful curves of the handle. The forks and spoons are made from 18/10 stainless steel; knife handles are 18/10 stainless and blades are forged from a single ingot of specially hardened stainless steel for a fine, sharp cutting edge. Each piece is polished by hand for an exceptional finish. A 5-piece place setting includes an 8" dinner fork, 7 1/4" salad fork, 9 1/2" dinner knife, 8" soup spoon and 6 1/4" teaspoon. The 20-piece set includes four 5-piece place settings. Dishwasher safe. Made in Vietnam.

My wife and I have been looking for a pattern that met her desire to have a nice "hand" and not be too big. I wanted a solid feel and weight. We both wanted an attractive pattern. This hit every desire.
Although the soup spoon is large, like an earlier reviewer said it is not so big that it is awkward. It feels nice.
We purchased the Hostess Set too. I would have preferred to get a slotted spoon in the set, but was happy with the matching style and products.
Pros: Balance, Size, Design, Weight, attractive, very nice fork tine width, excellent feel, smooth finish
Cons: no slotted spoon in hostess set

Confession: I could have written the sequel to War and Peace with the amount of time I've spent researching flatware. Part of my problem is finding a knife that will not show rust spots. Trickier than one thinks. I'm giving this one a go - so far no rust spots (5 days in) but I will update my review if that changes.
Secondly, the spoon is a bit ovalish for my taste. The soup spoon is on the large size (but not as large as some continental sets). However, these pieces have a nice weight (heavier than most) and are nice in the mouth (narrower spoon and fork tines). Do I feel weird talking about the "mouth feel" of flatware? Yes I do. However, it's part of what make this set great. I also love the slender, cylindrical necks. The nicest piece in the set is the knife - beautiful to look and the perfect weight.
Pros: Quality, Balance, Appearance, Weight

I'm over 8 months into owning this set and am still pleased with the purchase. Are they flawless? No, I have had a couple of spots but they are minor (especially compared to a few other sets I tried). Here's how to keep your knives looking great: wipe food off the blade before loading into dishwasher, blade down, don't let the blades touch.
