Paris stainless steel by David Mellor Design

This is connoisseurs’ cutlery for people who appreciate fine dining, bringing effortless elegance to any table setting.

A great number of specialist craft processes are involved in the making and this gives Paris its perfectionist finish. It is modern cutlery of exceptional finesse.

Satin finish. Knife blades are made from high carbon stainless steel for a superior cutting edge.

David Mellor Paris is modern cutlery of exceptional finesse.  The cutlery is made by a small specialist team of highly skilled craftsmen, some of whom have worked for decades with David Mellor, building up an exceptional expertise in metalwork.  Though the factory is technologically advanced a high degree of hand finishing is employed to give the cutlery its perfectionist quality.

In 1992, David Mellor was approached by the Silver Trust, a charitable organization that commissions new silver from practicing British silversmiths for government residences and embassies, to design new silver cutlery for the British Prime Minister residence at 10 Downing Street.  The Trust desired ornate and decorative silverware for this project, which was contrary to Mellor's modern aesthetic.  Ultimately, Mellor would not compromise his stylistic approach and withdrew from the commission.  He developed the Silver Trust design further to form the basis of two important lines: English and Paris.
