The Knork revisited – here are two Swedish examples.

After our post on the knork the other day, Smart Stuff reader Peter K mailed us to remind us that there are at least a couple of Swedish takes on the knife/fork combo. There’s the classic hot dog stand fork (left) that has been developed and manufactured by Merplast in Ängelholm since the 60s. The hot dog fork has a serrated edge, but as far as we know it only really works for right-handed people. Peter K also says that a Knork is pretty similar to a pastry fork. And he’s got a point, there. We have not been able to find a representative pastry fork, but we have a picture of the Gense hors d’oeuvre fork that looks like it has knife edges on the sides. Thanks to Peter for the mails!brbr
