The products were designed by Mr Jaivid Rangthong in the early 1970's and are made of stainless steel 18/8 grade. The inspiration was drawn from traditional handicrafts and the tools that farmers in the Thai countryside have used for centuries.

All items are manufactured in Thailand, still by hand and in the traditional manner. Both the blades and the handles are forged from a single piece of stainless steel. The blades are highly polished and the handles blackened over an open fire.

The matte surface constitutes a sharp contrast to the inherent purity of the steel and hence creates the collection's unique character.

Besides the pieces in this folder there are bowls, serving dishes, napkin rings and other items in the same design.

In 1984 the Rangthong line was included in the permanent collections of the Museum of Modern Art in New York.

The embossed Rangthong brand on the objects is your guarantee of the authenticity and ensures you that everything is forged from stainless steel of the highest quality.


All objects can be cleaned in the dishwasher but make sure to set the cutlery with the handles downwards. The matt surface may be freshened up with beeswax but should not be polished.
However, if desired, it is encouraged to polish the shiny metal with a polishing agent for stainless steel.

The unpolished metal will not get its final light grey patina until after having been used for some time. Therefore please note that the matt finish on a new object in rare cases may stain a little if hot and wet.
