The Sambonet Gio Ponti stainless steel flatware pattern is a tribute to the twentieth century Italian designer of the same name. In 1939 the designer himself, Gio Ponti, designed this flatware pattern that features classic, simple lines and a square, straight edge bottom. Another feature is Gio Ponti's signature which is embellished on each serrated knife blade. This is a heavyweight pattern. The solid handle knife is especially heavy.
