In 1995, Carl Pott dreamed up the iconic Pott 22 cutlery set loung­ing under a Chest­nut tree watch­ing a leaf flutter to the ground. Its curl became a grace­ful spoon; the set became the flat­ware used for the 1972 Munich Olympics. Since then, it’s become a true classic, with a double-edged knife featur­ing both smooth and serrated sides and table and tea spoons, each in matt-brushed stain­less steel. Offered in sets of 5 and 20, the design embod­ies a process perfected over the last century, linking the classic elegance of Carl Hugo Pott’s early dama­scened steel to the 90-step process today’s arti­sans use to create legacy pieces in the Mettman factory in Germany.

Pott flat­ware, knives and acces­sories are all dish­washer safe however we always recom­mend hand washing when possi­ble. For Pott knives, hand washing is ideal as to not dull the blade or be exposed to acidic food remnants. Regular main­te­nance, such as wiping your stain­less steel prod­ucts with a non-abra­sive metal cleaner or using silver polish for all ster­ling prod­ucts, will ensure that you can enjoy their appeal and elegance for decades. Pott can refur­bish your flat­ware and sharpen your knives, as well as replace damaged blades. The tradi­tional craft­ing process of Pott prod­ucts is your warranty for a perfect and endur­ing quality product.

Hugo Pott coined the whimsical term "spoonery" for his flatware, the process of creating his seemingly effortless designs is however very calculated. Master craftsmen apply a century of accumulated wisdom and skill in the production process, which for those humble spoons include more than 30 steps—and more than 90 for knives, handmade of molybdenum and vanadium steel alloy, with handles of quartz-sand for an exceptional balance.

Pott’s father, Carl Hugo Pott, founded the eponymous workshop in 1904; three decades later, Pott transformed the steel specialists into true artisans, fashioning utensils of his own conception throughout the mid-20th Century. He also commissioned collections by fellow modernists including Hermann Gretsch, Paul Voss, and Josef Hoffmann, all equally ergonomic and elegant.

Third-generation craftsman Hannspeter Pott joined the fold in 1985, keeping the spirit alive while initiating bold collaborations with Ljubisa Misic, Ralph Krämer, Stefanie Hengel and others. When the legendary Siebel family bought the company in 2006, Pott had won some 700 global awards and earned spots in the permanent collection of institutions like the Museum of Modern Art.
