Puiforcat Zermatt Salad/Fish Fork, Stainless Steel
The Zermatt Salad/Fish Fork is fashioned entirely from stainless steel. French designer Patrick Jouin conceived this distinctive design from the breathtaking mountain views of Zermatt, an opulent Swiss ski resort in the Alps. Inspired by the majestic 4478m summit of Matterhorn, the desginer reflected the strong, sharp lines of the Alpine terrain into his creation. The Zermatt collection created for the House of Puiforcat in 2010 was quickly recognized as a contemporary classic by the world's top museums, from the Centre Pompidou in Paris to the New York Museum of Arts and Design.

|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.|
