If you were going to be stuck on a desert island with only one kitchen utensil, it would be a knife. But if you could have two, you might consider a fork. Maybe a spoon because it’s like a little shovel, but most likely a fork. Forks are ideal for poking and stabbing food. Once the food is speared, you can use the fork to hold it in place to cut it with a knife (they work well together), or you can lift the food to your mouth and chew it. Pretty nifty. The more I think about it, the more useless a fork is. Knives can stab, cut and spear. Spoons can stir and hold mouthfuls of food… forks are just glorified food pokers for civilized people. No one will go to your dinner party if you don’t have forks (unless you’re Asian, then they demand chopsticks).
