Rated 4 out of 5 by MeeTwo steak knives scratch the black plates.
Great and effective with the white pattern, however be careful when using steak knives on the black. It tends to scratch.
Rated 5 out of 5 by CoachMom Old World meets New World
I love Mikasa's Black Swirl dishes! I say they're "old world meets new world" because the black matte swirl finish on the outside has a potter's artistry look to it, like it is fresh off the potter's wheel, but the black gloss finish inside gives it that new world modern look. This versatility in styling allows it to compliment any kitchen's decor, modern or classic.
