Ugly cutlery

Yes, I know that beauty is a subjective measure, and to my eye this cutlery is shockingly, surprisingly, stunningly ugly:

The picture doesn't do it justice, by the way; it's actually much uglier in real life - all the worst things about airline cutlery, somehow made more intense, more lumpishly crude. And don't feed me that "cheap and cheerful" line - this cutlery has no cheer whatsoever. It doesn't even have that pitiable cuteness that mawkish things often invoke.

Meaning that it doesn't do anything for my aesthetic. Your mileage, natch, may vary.
