We have the steak knife set and love them, so bought the rest of the flatware and while they are very pretty, the salad fork and tea spoon are very tiny-actually more like a child's size. I do realize that they are french and therfore more delicate in size, but they are smaller than my family's french antique silver set from the early 1800s. They have held up well in the dishwasher so far (we've had them about a month), but overall they feel rather lightweight compared to my steak knives
