    I usually carry a Salad fork, concealed, and it sure is capable of shoveling in the food. As a self defense weapon it keeps family members from snatching food offa my plate, and they have the scars to prove it. But I would like to know what you guys think.

    So you have to stab people in your own home in order to eat in peace?
    Since you asked, I think you should move and not let them know where you go.

    since the "who gets the last porkchop?"incident that cost me a kidney in '72, I am always on guard at the dinner table. Little sisters can be unstable and dangerous.

    Salad is fine, but I like to keep a bit of distance between me and "them." Carving fork or in a pinch a serving works just fine!

    Nobody NEEDS a military style high capacity stainless steel fork with extra tines. A plastic spork works just fine. If somebody is threatening to enter your plate and take your food just do 2 warning pokes thru the paper plate.

    You know when the Bill of rights were ratified in 1779 the common fork was only a 3 tiner and it did everything the average man needed no reason to go go crazy on some 4 tiner. If your really a traditionalist you can go with a nice bone handle I personally carry on of these with me.

    Compact easy to pocket yet quick to deploy. The Sambar Stag handles give excellent purchase and while a little harder to clean then a smooth bone I think the esthetics are well worth the effort.

    Real men carry Titanium Sporks. There is nothing more tactical then something that can tear into a steak and spoon up a good soup. And why go after salad? Salad if what food eats.

    You have to pay $200 and wait 12 months to have it registered as a SHR (short handle fork)

    A D-handle mulch fork lets them know you mean business and can hold your entire salad at one go. For the BUF I like to carry and Oyster Fork

    Them: Why do you always feel the need to have a fork.
    Me: I would rather have a fork, and not need it, then to need a fork, and not have it.

    Just sayin.

    It is totally rude to use on a family member! I haven't pinned some aWhole's hand to a table since the Army! "Man! The Army owns everything here, including my azz, except this food! This food is mine now so do not bubblegum with it!"
