Didriks Introduces New Flatware Designs by Corin Mellor
CAMBRIDGE, Mass., Dec. 07, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — This December, Didriks – www.didriks.com – announces exciting new flatware and kitchen knife collections from British design house David Mellor, designed by David Mellor’s son, Corin Mellor.
The new Chelsea cutlery design by Corin Mellor shows the influence of David Mellor, but maintains its own striking individuality. There are overtones of classic 18th century cutlery in the shape of the knife, while the forks and spoons have beautiful fluidity. The Chelsea collection is comprehensive, including a steak knife, butter knife, and serving spoon.
The new Provencal kitchen knives by Corin Mellor echo the classic 1973 Provencal cutlery design by David Mellor, while offering a new interpretation of the traditional, fully forged professional chef’s knife. The knives exploit the latest techniques in manufacturing. The high carbon stainless steel blades are hot drop forged and ice hardened to minus -112 degrees F for exceptional hardness and durability.
