They seem to be the older style than the ones we bought from bbb, sadly the knife from this order actually has a little rust in the blade, which they are not suppose to do so that dissapointing, and the edges of the handles are little more flat where the original ones we have are more rounded.
99 per place setting, amazon is offering this pattern at outlet prices for torun. I have owned this silverware for over 10 years, and it looks as good today as when i purchased it. The stainless is of the highest grade, 18/10, and this ensures that it will tolerate the dishwasher very well. Instructions that came with mine said to polish it once a year, but i have not found this necessary. The stainless is of a quality that it doesn’t show scratches either. The design is timeless; it will be as contemporary 25 years from now as today. It is also versatile enough to use for every day and formal occasions. The only thing that takes getting used to is the knife; the curved handle allows for positioning the knife with the blade down. Also be aware that complementary and serving pieces are going to be expensive and hard to find.
I have the torun from the early 1980s. Beautiful, wonderful quality. However, the weighting of the pieces really takes some getting used to. Feels awkward in your hand, the knife is frequently falling off the plate, and pieces are always getting dropped when clearing dishes or serving buffet. Although i love this set, and how graceful and artistic it looks on the table, it is hard to live with for daily use. Enough that i am using my mother’s silverplate from the 40’s instead and now shopping for a new pattern.
Dansk Torun 5-Piece Place Setting, Service for 1 : Wife loved it since it matched our formal set.
I really apprecate that the seller contacted me to confirm they are different than the original.
We bought these thinking that they would match a previously purchased torun set, but they are inferior quality. They are lighter weight, and the stamp in each of them is large and deep (and ugly). The shape of the spoon bowls is not the same- they’re more elongated and the transition to the stem isn’t smooth. The bowls aren’t even smooth oval shape. The bottom ends are less indented in all of the spoons and forks. The stems actually have corners instead of being smooth. Our old set, made in japan, was very good quality, and it has worn well. The craftsmanship of these chinese ones is far inferior. It’s disappointing that this formerly high quality item had its production moved to china.
In the pictures, the 1998 set is on the left and the new ones are on the right. The knife is ever so slightly shorter, as is the fork. The soup spoon has a more elongated bowl and the edges of all pieces are more blunted and less rounded than my original set. The overall quality is fine and most guests would never notice the difference. I returned them because i notice the difference and have decided to purchased used ones that will match perfectly. If you’re starting a set from scratch, i would still recommend these.
Like others, i found these pieces ever so slightly different from what we have had for almost thirty years. They are slimmer, lighter and a bit more delicate. There is a bit less mass in the handle. There is nothing wrong with them unless you are simply accustomed to the earlier style. Because i was concerned that they might be forgeries, i ordered a set directly from dansk and i can confirm that this is what they have for torun now. The dansk set was identical to the ones purchased here. I weighed one of the new pieces and it weighed in at exactly 10% less than it’s older cousin. My conclusion is that it was a cost-saving measure, probably when they went to manufacturing in china. Not everybody will be able to pick out the different ones from a bin of stainless and your dinner guests will not notice any differences in their table service, if that helps.
You just can’t go wrong with this pattern. I registered for it when i was married in 1996, and then in 2013 a friend of mine got married and she registered for it too. So, this 3-piece hostess set was my gift to her. My set from 1996 looks just a beautiful as her new set looked in 2013. My favorite pieces are the knives – they stand upright on your table.
I initially purchased this one place setting of dansk torun in order to ‘test drive’–to see if i liked it enough to get a whole set. I was replacing previous flatware that i had grown tired of, and sold for a nice sum to replacements. When i decided that i did like this flatware pattern, i went back to amazon to get more place settings. Earlier there had been an 43 piece set (8 settings + 3 serving pieces) which was available at a discount over the individual setting price, but that was no longer available. I had to go elsewhere in order to purchase the remaining place settings and serving pieces. Even though i purchased my full set elsewhere, i am reviewing the flatware here in case sets become available in future. I searched long and hard for the perfect set of flatware. Here is what i like about dansk torun:- i like the weight of it in my hand. – minimalist, modern design.
I completely agree with the reviews citing the difference when they moved manufacturing to china. We started with an 8 place set of the older korean made and loved them. When we added to make 12 place settings a few years back, the sets are different. Quality is indeed lower, too. They weigh less, are not as polished, and do not ‘spoon’ well, either with other chinese made or the older korean counterparts really a big disappointment for the premium price. The head company is obviously profit taking from such an esteemed model and brand. Switched over to henckels for every day use, the designs are complimentary, quality as good or better, and about 45% lower in price.
Able to replace the missing piece from my set.
We had a bunch of older settings and needed to add to it. While it is the same items, they now manufactured in china instead of japan – i know dansk of asia???. Anyway, they are not the same. They are slightly different with more of an edge instead of smooth. Close enough and we are desperate enough to keep them. These are our everyday silverware so not that big of a deal, i guess.
I was so very glad to find order to replace missing pieces that i must have lost or tossed over the years.
I received the items i purchased in a reasonable amount of time. They were exactly what was ordered.
Just got them yesterday, and they match the set i have from 2007 perfectly.
Beautiful flatware from a respected company. Good quality, goes through dishwasher beautifully (just keep them separate from other metal utensils).
Beautiful dinnerware and well made but note that they did change the shape of the flatware from what it was when we first bought it 25 years ago. That said, if you’re building a set now you’ll have no problem with that. Just make sure you like the feel of these very slender utensils—takes a while to get used to them, but i love them (i have medium size hands). Our original set has worn well for 25+ years—no damage from daily use. We purchased these new ones to outfit a new apartment.
Very beautiful and feel great in the hand. Wife is very happy and will be ordering 4 more sets, great quality and craftsmanship.
This is the last set i purchase thru amazon to complete my dinning set. It’s made in korea not china, so they are a bit heavier as it should be. There are other made in japan that are also good. Very please with the seller.
