Here’s an honest no-nonsense fork worthy of any enlisted man's ration. Based on original examples, approximately 7-1/2 inches long. Handmade by a blacksmith right here in Indiana. Use it as a dinner fork, or insert a stick through the loop and use it as a roasting fork.

Perfect carry fork
A fork to be used in the traditional manner. The fork a relatively new table piece was kept on the left side, to be used by the left hand, which was never to be put to your mouth. The left hand, the hand of the devil, was to be use for only one purpose, which I will not describe here. The fork was to secure your food while you cut it into an appropriate portion and move it on to the side of your knife, you would then raise the food to your mouth and remove it with your lips, never your tounge, from the back of your knife. Mothers would admonish their children to never put the fork in their mouths and never lick your knife.Review by Peter(Posted on 1/13/2018)
