Grabber Fork

by Aaragorn
Not For Sale
Tired of food slipping out of the tines? No worries. This fork has spines between each tine to hold on when you stick slippery food.

ctxspy, I did this design as a response to being personally annoyed with the fact that some foods slip out when stabbed with a fork. Both of your observations make potentially valid points. I have no working knowledge of toxicity related to materials so I would suggest sticking to stainless steel for this one which is tried and true from a toxicity standpoint. Nor have I actually printed one of these out to see if the spines are large enough to print well. Other experts would know the answer to that better than I do. It remains a concept illustration which may indeed be humorous. It may also work! he he. I don't have the experience yet to either confirm or deny how well it would work. Thank you for your comments Aaragorn

Not sure if this is a 'joke' item, so I apologize if I missed the joke. 1) Are these materials all non toxic and safe for food consumption? It may be a liability issue to present something as safe for contact with food if it isn't. 2) As a technical note, the spines seem very small, not sure if they will be there when printed.
