The cutlery series "SUNAO" was designed by graf, a group of designers, and produced by Tsubame Shinko Kogyo Corporation in Tsubame City, Niigata Prefecture, Japan's foremost manufacturing center for tabletop utensils.
As the name suggests, the straightforward design expresses ease of use and blends easily into everyday life.
A total of eight types of cutlery are available. The "teaspoon" is perfect for serving drinks or eating pudding and jelly. The "ice cream spoon" has a thin plate and shape calculated to enjoy ice cream. The "Cake Fork" sticks firmly to even the toughest cakes such as tarts. The "Butter Spreader" is easy to use and the blade goes easily into thick butter, and the "Soup Spoon" is shaped to make it easy to drink soup with its slightly protruding sides.
The "Dinner Spoon," "Dinner Fork," and "Dinner Knife" are useful at the dinner table, whether used together or individually. The eight pieces of cutlery are designed to suit different occasions, shapes, and sizes.
The cutlery is generally made thin so that it can be used together with chopsticks. If you have all types of cutlery, you will be able to use them at any dining table.
The knives are made of 18-8 stainless steel and have a moderate weight, but they fit securely in your fingertips, so you won't feel tired.
