Non-recession flatware

Could this flatware set be more wrong? First of all, the handles are made from buffalo horn, which besides the obvious un-PCness, it also means you can't stick 'em in the dishwasher. Then there's the price: $75 for a five piece place setting. But God, I love them so. Click here if you're still interested.

Walter Lowry, the owner of Los Angeles' Table Art chimed in with a welcome correction: "Buffalo horn handles are very PC! The animal is not killed for its horn (animal is way too valuable). It is considered respectful of the dead animal to use all of its parts (at least in the cultures where water buffalo are prevalent)."

Great! Thanks Walter!
