This pattern was manufactured for 22 years by the Sasaki company, based in Japan. The design on these pieces is extremely simple aside from one distinct feature, which is the ball-like sphere at the tip of the handles. Perhaps this is the inspiration for the name Orbit, possibly bearing resemblance to the planets that are in orbit in our solar system. The set seems to serve its purposes best in an informal setting, though it could be used formally with other pieces.
Our favorite Sasaki Orbit pieces are the fork as well as the teaspoon.
