Ashbury Bright cutlery is a classic pattern with a contemporary twist; the knives feature a fluid curve which creates a feeling of movement.
This 3 piece sample set will allow you to see how the table knife is designed to be poised for use, resting vertically with the cutting edge raised from the table top (traditionally shaped knives are also available), as well as to understand how the classic styling of Ashbury Bright forks and spoons contrasts against the modern silhouette of the table, side and steak knives. Notice how the gentle kick up of the end of the fork and spoon handles present a mirror image of the downward curve of the knife handle and hold the knife to feel how the curved handle sits against the palm of your hand.
The best way to choose cutlery is simply to try it. It's important that your cutlery is well balanced, comfortable to hold and also the appropriate size. If you are undecided and unable to visit one of our stores or retailers, try our cutlery sample service (within the UK), which allows you to try up-to three different cutlery collections at home.

• Use quality branded all in one dishwasher tablets*
• Keep Rinse Aid topped up and Salt (for hard water areas).
• Avoid washing with non-stainless steel metals (this can cause rust staining - especially on knives).

Design Story: Ashbury (2006)
One of the earliest cutlery designs created for Robert Welch by Kit deBretton Gordon, Ashbury takes inspiration from historic cutlery and is reminiscent of the shape of ‘pistol grip’ knives.
Now Head of Design, Kit recalls the design process for Ashbury: “I liked the concept of the handle fitting beautifully into the palm of the hand, and I developed the design from there. Cutlery should be an extension of the hand and multiple versions of the prototype knife were made to hone the feeling of balance whilst holding and using.”
