Even a flat­ware pattern with corners and edges can have some flour­ish, as shown by this Carl Pott 36 design. Part of the fasci­na­tion lies in the beveled cut of the handle edges that creates a light effect that reflects the natural artistry of the grinders and polish­ers. The flour­ish of the fork and spoon lies in the light upswing that under­lines the elegance of the design. Pott 36 is avail­able in 18/10 stainless steel.

Pott flat­ware, knives, and acces­sories are all dish­washer safe; however, we always recom­mend hand washing when possi­ble. For Pott knives, hand washing is ideal not to dull the blade or expose it to any 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.
