Halloween is tomorrow and I just found this wonderful skull flatware set. It’s called Calavera by Liberty Tabletop. I don’t know how I haven’t come across this before now.
Calavera flatware Available as:
20 piece set - Service for 4
45 Piece Set - Service for 8 with 5 Piece Serving Set
65 Piece Set - Service for 12 with 5 Piece Serving Set
Even more shocking, I just found out that this is the last manufacture of flatware in the United States. Every piece of Liberty Tabletop flatware is made by American craftsmen. Using stainless steel sourced from American steel mills and melted right here in the U.S. as well.
This is a big deal. Many other manufactures use a lesser quality 18-0 stainless steel to save money. Foreign steel mills are not regulated by the same standards as those here in America. Often, the quality of the steel used is not tested. This means imported flatware can contain lead, mercury and non-metallic toxins. These are products our families put in their mouths daily.
The company started after Oneida (the largest flatware manufacture) closed its plant in Sherrill, New York. Oneida relocated to China after operating out of the Sherrill plant for 125 years.
Two former Oneida executives purchased the plant. It opened as Sherrill Manufacturing the day after Oneida closed up shop. It remains the only flatware manufacture in the United States. They have since added the United States federal government to their list of clients.
Liberty Tabletop makes all their flatware with 18/10 stainless steel. 18/10 means the stainless steel is composed of 18% chrome and 10% nickel. Chromium gives the flatware its rust-resistant qualities. The higher nickel content prevents pitting and corrosion. It also allows the flatware to have a beautiful polished finish.
The flatware is dishwasher safe. Just be sure to avoid citrus scented dish washing detergent (lemon or orange) and chlorine. These products can ruin the luster and finish of your flatware.
Liberty Tabletop flatware comes with a 25 year warranty against manufacture defects.
You can definitely use the Calavera skull pattern as your everyday flatware set if that’s your style. If you set your table with something a bit more traditional, here are a few of their most popular patterns.
