Herdmar has manufactured high quality flatware since 1911 in Guimares, Portugal, home of that country's fine metals businesses for centuries. A family-owned company, they use only the best quality 18/10 stainless steel for their flatware, which gives each piece a luxurious shine, and makes it easy-care and very durable. "Oslo Black" is a very simple pattern, with tapered handles that round at the end, and the tail of each piece is curved so it is slightly raised for a stylish feel. The unique and high-style Black finish is a proprietary coating technique that permanently fuses the black coating to each piece, making the black mirror finish scratch-resistant and very durable. Each piece is a heavy gauge 3mm to 4mm thickness. Both the place spoon and teaspoon are large sized, and the dinner knife has a solid handle and serrated cutting edge. Each piece except the knife is hallmarked "Herdmar 18/10 Portugal" on the back of the handle; the knife is markedHerdmar on the blade.
