Guide Review - Knork®
I was pleasantly surprised that the design of the Knork® actually works well, much better than a standard fork. The beveled edge combined with a rocking motion cut smoothly through every cooked food I tried it on. It's perfect for stand-up parties, when you have to hold your plate in one hand and the utensil in the other. You only have to juggle one utensil, instead of a knife and a fork.
Aside from lazy eaters like me, the Knork® can be a valuable tool for the temporarily-injured or physically-challenged. Those who can only use one hand due to broken bones, strokes, or similar medical conditions will find this utensil quite useful.
Although the Knork® classic version is of a heavy stainless steel construction that might feel a bit too hefty for some, the company also offers a lightweight yet sturdy plastic reusable product that works on the same principle with near equal results.
You can buy the Knork® by the piece or in sets of four. If your flatware is not overly ornate, the polished or brushed stainless versions of the Knork® will fit in. Full sets of matching flatware are also available.
