Yamazaki Hafnia is inspired by traditional Scandanavian design, but the designers at Yamazaki go much further than that. This is probably the most comfortable flatware pattern we offer (out of over 500 stainless flatware patterns).
Start with the curvature of the handle - the upturn at the end of the handle means that the end rests upon your index metacarpal, and curves up at just the right point. The bowls of the spoons and the forks are meticulously hand-finished, and shaped for maximum comfort. Really. This isn't marketing fluff, we've actually used this pattern, and several friends of staff members have purchased it for their homes.
Very heavy weight, brushed finish, premium 18/8 quality. Hafnia has a smaller knife, which requires a lot less effort to apply force to your food. We highly recommend this pattern.
