Was at Williams Sonoma for second time this week and I bought a set of Robert Welch Fluke. The quality is immediately apparent. They're completely solid, made from a single piece of steel, feel great in your hand, and they look like sculpture. Every other brand W-S stocked had two-piece knives with hollow handles that had no heft, and some of them were even more expensive than the RW stuff. I was thoroughly confused as to why that would be the case. I can't remember who mentioned oneida, but honestly, there's no comparing Oneida to RW, or anything else W-S sold. I looked at probably 30 sets of Oneida at a different store and they're not even in the same league. Anyway, I deliberated for a while, worried how the satin finish would look next to the platinum rim of my china, but I bought on impulse and will see how it looks. At worst I'll return it.
