In the early 1960s, the Mono A series was complemented by Mono E (ebony) and Mono T (teak). The basic shapes of fork and spoon are the same as Mono A, the flatware handles of Mono E and Mono T are faced on both sides with riveted wood. This creates an attractive contrast to the stainless steel. Mono E and T combine very well with serving pieces from the Mono A series.
Both ebony and teak are very durable woods that, with appropriate care, will last for decades despite daily use and contact with water. However, they are not suitable for cleaning in the dishwasher. The knife blade is made of hardened blade steel that ensures long cutting durability. For more tips on caring for Mono flatware, click here.
If you are unsure whether Mono E or Mono T is the flatware of your choice, you can test it at home in daily use to make your decision with a high level of confidence. More information about the Mono flatware tasting can be found here.
