Perhaps it's the Frenchman in him that holds important the everyday ritual of eating. Or maybe they paid really well. His 5 piece place setting can be purchased here for $120.
Here's the description: "The knife is made in a single piece, giving it a resilient form and severe profile. The sides of the fork are sharp while its symmetry allows it to function equally well for right or left-handed users."
It's true, it's a sleek set and surely would stand out on the dinner table. Question is, would that high design make the everyday any less mundane?
