Replacing the Silverware

Retroneu ContourWhen I lived on my own in Florida, I bought a set of silverware that I really, really liked, primarily because it was the heaviest silverware I could find. The forks have only three tines, too, which I like.

I still have the silverware, a decade later, but an unusually high number of the regular forks are missing. If you look at the back side of the fork, you can make out the words "RETRONEU" and "18/10" and "China."

It turns out, the silverware is called "Retroneu Contour" and it's currently made by Towle. For future reference, some links where I can get more of this silverware should more forks wander off into the abyss:

http://www.bedbathandbeyond.com/product.asp?SKU=100307

Of course, they pop up on eBay from time to time as well. But apparently that Replacements.com site is the place to go if you need silverware.
