I'm looking for flatware, with the ones I'm considering only available on-line so I can't touch and feel them before ordering them.
To try to minimize the costs of shipping and handling for all those options, is there any way to know just by looking at the pictures if a flatware will be off? What should I look for before buying flatware online?
For example, this Moma set:
Does anybody own this set? I'm worried that the balance and how it feels in the hand, especially that knife. I think the knife looks great with that modern shape, but I'm worried if it compromised its function for that form.
I first noticed this on some design blog, but I wonder if the writer actually ever handled this set. With the way design blogs and mags works today, it seems like you'll attract attention by giving the product a eye-grabbing shape or surprise/difference without regard to how functional the product really is.
