What's in a set?
Thaxted has 36 pieces of cutlery so that you can lay the table for six. That’s six knives and forks as well as six dessert knives, forks and teaspoons.
Our Thaxted cutlery is made from 18/10 stainless steel with the knives being made from a specially hardened stainless steel which makes them slightly stronger. Thaxted is named after a small town in Essex that was the centre of English cutlery production in the 14th century. Not too heavy, nor too light, not too long nor too short, our cutlery has been designed to feel ‘just right’ in your hand. You’ll feel reassured by the quality each time you pick them up, but not like your hand needs a rest halfway through supper.
Children's place settings
For everyday dining, you can use the smaller dessert knife, dessert fork and teaspoon for main course and pudding for the children in the family.
As a gift
Because it’s just so classic, we think Thaxted makes a lovely wedding gift. So it comes in a smart, black presentation box
When it comes to smaller items, we don't hang around.
From our own, white-glove service for delivering larger pieces in the UK and Ireland, to our courier and international partners, rest assured that we’ve done everything we can to make sure your order gets to you on time and in one, perfect piece.
Delivery’s also entirely free if you’re in the UK and spend over £50 (or €100 in Ireland).
We believe that returns should be easy, which is why we approach them with a ‘no quibble’ mindset. And, you’ll also have 28 days to do so – just in case you need time to mull things over.
It’s dishwasher-safe but will look better for longer if you wash it up by hand, using a soft dishcloth rather than an abrasive pan sponge.
