Puiforcat Zermatt Dinner Knife, Stainless Steel
This dinner knife, fashioned in stainless steel, was conceived as a reflection of Zermatt, an opulent ski resort surrounded by breathtaking mountainous peaks. The rugged majesty of the harsh alpine terrain is reflected in the strong, cutting lines of the fork and dinner knife. For his first foray into flatware, French designer Patrick Jouin created the Zermatt collection with the distinctive design language of Art Deco Modernists. This flatware set created for the House of Puiforcat in 2010 has already been recognized as a contemporary classic by authoritative observers. The world's top museums, including the Centre Pompidou in Paris to the New York Museum of Arts and Design, have touted its brilliance.

|Details & Care||Flatware may be machine washed. However, taking certain precautions and remaining attentive to cleaning products used is recommended: – powder detergent is preferable to chlorinated liquids, and should be used sparingly; – prior to each washing, be sure to separate silver cutlery from stainless steel items; – to facilitate the flow of water on the blades, knives should be placed in the silverware basket with the blades facing downward; – remove the cutlery at the end of the cycle or leave the dishwasher door cracked open to avoid condensation spots on the blades; – to prevent scratches on the knives, be sure that they are separated and do not knock together. Nevertheless, it is natural for the silverware's finish to evolve with continued use and washing.|
