KNORK: A fork that can act as a knife. We guess they could have gone down the root of naming it a Fife but maybe it started getting messy when pluralised… Fifes or Fives? We’ll never know…
Randomly, the first thing that sprang to mind was the superb children’s author Roald Dahl. Why Roald Dahl? In his autobiographical book ‘Boy: Tales of Childhood’, he describes how his father lost an arm and therefore had to learn how to do everything single handed. Of his father he said:
“He could tie a shoelace as quickly as you or me, and for cutting up the food on his plate, he sharpened the bottom edge of a fork so that it served as both knife and fork all in one. He kept his ingenious instrument in a slim leather case and carried it in his pocket wherever he went.”
You too could set about crafting knorks out of your favourite cutlery set and but we wouldn’t recommend it. KNORK have done such a good job so that you don’t have to!
For starters, they do not sharpen the edge. They carefully bevel the edges of the KNORK so that it can cut through food whilst being perfectly safe to place in your mouth. Furthermore, they have ergonomically designed the fork out of it, to provide comfort and balance in the hand, with a finger platform that aids cutting.
Our verdict: Cut above the rest!
