A new addition to our collection of textured patterns, Blockley Slate Bright cutlery features a tactile, stone-like texture on the surface along the length of each handle, both front and back. When highlighted in daylight or by candlelight the pattern has a unique lustre, creating a statement on the table alongside both formal and casual tableware. Blockley Slate Bright cutlery has been created to be perfectly balanced and satisfying to hold and use.
Inspiration note: Mix and match our Blockley Slate Bright cutlery and Blockley Bright cutlery ranges to create a unique and personal table setting.
Read our guide on how to set a table for all occasions.

Blockley Slate Bright spoons and forks are made from the highest quality 18/10 stainless steel.
Blockley Slate 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.

Designing the Robert Welch way
Robert Radford Welch MBE, RDI was one of the most respected British designers of the 20th century. He believed that everyone should be able to use beautifully designed products in everyday life. After training as a silversmith at the Royal College of Art in London, he specialised in design for stainless steel, establishing a company in his own name in 1955.
Today, the company works to ensure its rich legacy remains an inspiration to the design team, whilst continuing to innovate in terms of technique and technology.
