A contemporary design statement, the black and satin stainless steel Contour Noir cutlery collection offers a dramatic addition to the dining experience.
The table knife is designed to rest either traditionally or vertically on the table; either way sees the cutting edge of the knife raised from the table top. The elegant styling of Contour Noir forks and spoons balance against the silhouette of the table and steak knives.

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: Contour Noir
Contour Noir cutlery is a continuation of the design language originated by Paul deBretton Gordon for the Contour Walnut Steak Knife designed in 2013. Kit deBretton Gordon took this concept and extended it to encompass a focused cutlery collection.
The pieces are curvaceous and make a distinct statement on the table. The smoothness of each piece sits comfortably in the hand and the fluidity of the form is accentuated by the use of dual materials.
