Inspired by the clean lines of modernist architecture, Blockley Bright cutlery is a slender, linear cutlery pattern. Each piece has a distinctive hollow running down the length of the handle which catches and reflects light. Blockley Bright cutlery has been created to be perfectly balanced and satisfying to hold and use, with no uncomfortable edges.
This pared back, linear design is an unusual departure for Robert Welch Designs, known for organic forms. Blockley is a straight forward, minimalist pattern with no fussy detailing, decidedly suited to the contemporary table.
This 3 piece sample set will allow you to try the weight and balance of this design for yourself and lay the table with it to check that the cutlery complements your other tableware.
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.
Blockley Bright cutlery is part of Collection 3.5 - All pieces in this collection are made from best quality 3.5mm stainless steel, a slightly thinner gauge that gives each piece a lighter feel in the hand. All patterns in this collection are sold at one price.
Blockley Bright spoons and forks are made from the highest quality 18/10 stainless steel.
Blockley Bright knives are forged from specially hardened stainless steel for a fine cutting edge.
Care & need to know
We recommend washing your cutlery/flatware in the dishwasher:
• Wash on a short hot cycle 65°-75°C (150°-167°F)
• 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).
• Ensure the dishwasher filters are cleaned and use a proprietary dishwasher cleaner regularly.
*For UK customers we recommend Fairy Platinum Plus and for US customers Cascade Platinum Plus.
When washing your Cutlery/Flatware by hand:
Rinse cutlery/flatware to remove all traces of food as soon as possible after use. Wash in warm soapy water with a microfibre cloth or non abrasive brush**. Try to avoid soaking your cutlery/flatware and always dry thoroughly immediately after washing.
**Always avoid scouring with pads or abrasive cleaners as this will scratch the surface.
To restore your finish on your cutlery/flatware we recommend using a dry microfibre cloth.

Design Story: Blockley
In 1961, Robert Welch bought a plot of land, the former kitchen Garden of Alveston Leys near Stratford-upon-Avon. He worked with London architects, Elie Mayorcas and Patrick Guest to create a one-storey, modernist house. His home reflected his central design ethos - economy of form, priority of function, but not at the expense of aesthetics.
The pared back, linear design of Blockley has firm foundations in Robert Welch’s legacy. As with all of Robert Welch designs, inspiration does not impose on functionality and each pattern is created to be perfectly balanced and satisfying to hold and use.
