3 Illustrated ‘Fork’ Tales

forked tongue



The fork has a rich history – progressing from 2 prongs to 4, passing from the delicate hands of gentlefolk to the most burly man, crossing borders of Greece, Italy and France, finally to land on our shores in the 1600’s– but what lies in its future?

Who’d have though the humble fork could evolve so usefully – reducing the need for hands, a flame or even background music. While the forks here are straight from my imagination, here are some innovative designs for forks straight (and curvy) from the shops…who’d have thought they could be so versatile. So next time you reach for the fork, give it some attention and marvel at its beautiful simplicity.
