Does anyone else taste flatware?

I know this is a goofy question... But I sure could use some advice. I taste flatware when eating. Have since I was a kid. Hate the taste.

The ones that I get the least taste out of were made in the 50s - 60s (I think they were Onieda), and the ones that are genuinely awful to eat with are some that we purchased from Ikea that were made in the last few years.

Blech. The ones from Ikea taste as though I'm licking the inside of a rusty tin can full of blood, dirty copper pennies and tomatoes.

I have to look for some new stuff or I'll end up at the dinner table eating with a sharp stick. If any of you have the same problem I could use some advice on a better brand. It's not like I can put a bunch of store displays in my mouth... Well, I could... But I wouldn't be able to do so for long before store security booted me out.
