I was beyond thrilled to be able to review this set from Reed and Barton. Everything you see pictured in the above picture (exactly!) is what I chose to review, the carving set, the steak knife set and the accent dish. There were different choices of steak knives and the carving set, but I wanted them to match each other as well as match my existing set of serving pieces and my "fancy" in the silverware in the nice silverware chest. I enjoy hosting nice sit down dinners and we used to have regular dinner parties with friends (before kids) and hopefully will again. We do have a couple opportunities a year that we host a nice dinner or holiday meal and I get out our china and silverware and all of the serving pieces stored away in the hutch. I have quite the collection already and was so happy to add these pieces to them because I didn't have an elegant set of steak knives or carving set. One of my readers is going to win there own set of all 7 pieces!
Reed and Barton Hammered Antique Carving Set: I love the teardrop handle on these pieces. It fits perfectly with our nice silverware set. It feels good to hold these in your hand and use them. You can tell when you hold them in your hand that they are a quality made product. They have enough weight that you can tell they are not cheaply made and are a solid piece. There was one other design of carving set available from Reed and Barton.
Reed and Barton Hammered Antique Steak Knife Set: There are six different sets of steak knives to choose from at Reed and Barton, but I really wanted a set that matched the carving set and fit the look of my nice silverware. Both the carving set and the steak knife sets are dishwasher safe. Just like the carving set, you can tell these are quality made. Both sets are made with heavy gauge 18/10 stainless steel.
Just a couple of pictures for you to see the carving set in use at Thanksgiving at my in-laws house. I can't wait to use it to carve up our Christmas ham at our house. We have our own Christmas Day dinner at our house that I make for our family.

We didn't have a need to use the steak knives to cut up things at Thanksgiving dinner, so we used them to spread butter and they worked perfectly for that as well.

Reed and Barton Accent/Bread Dish: This is about 11 x 5.5" for its dimensions and for me it is too small for bread (I like my bread and like a larger dish of it!), but it would be perfect for a small mini loaf of bread. I think this would be perfect to set out a dish of mints in or some holiday candies.
These are the boxes that each of the pieces came in. You may be wondering why I am showing you them, but if you noticed in the pictures above, they each have nice spots to places the sets back in to place inside this thick and sturdy box. I find the best way to keep my nice pieces nice is to return them to their original boxes and store them that way. This beautiful packaging is wonderful for gift giving as well.
