The Worshipful Company of Goldsmiths organise an annual competition to encourage new designers in working in silver and gold.
The brief was to design and make a set of cutlery to be forged in silver. This design incorporates a steel edge to the knife, enabling the knife to be sharper than a completely silver knife could be. Traditionally, knives (with steel blades) are the only items that can be hall marked when they combine silver and another metal.
This design was awarded a high commendation in 1997 in the Young Silversmith Award run by The Worshipful Company of Goldsmiths.
