Three Vs. Four Pronged Forks

Mon Feb 18, 2002 7:43 am

Which do you prefer? I tend to go for the "3-prongers" as I like to call them. They may look a little odd, but they're the best IMO. You don't have to push as hard to get the food stuck on it and since 3-prongers weigh less, your hand doesn't get tired as quickly. Usually if I'm out at a restaurant and they set 4-prongers out, I'll ask them if they have any 3-prongers. Usually the answer is no.  Sad

But the number one reason I like the 3-prongers more is a reduced risk of injury. With the 4-prongers you have to open your mouth wider. Also more prongs = more risk. And that's a risk I'm not willing to take.

777236ER. I don't think you can throw that stone. Besides, Milli can post whatever he wants.

Now, I prefer the 4 prongers. I am not concerned with hand fatigue, as 25 years of use, has built up my stamina. I also have perfected my aim, so I am not worried about injurys. If i ever go out, and come across a 3 prong disaster, I always ask for a 4 stabber. Plus, as a benefit, the 4 banger can provide an extra entry wound when someone acts out (see above) and you end up stabbing them.

I can still air my opinion, KROC. It's fun for a while to see what everyone's interested in, but forks?! You have two choices -- inherantly boring.

But, people are obviously captivated by this thread, so i'll leave it alone.

777236ER. You can air your opinion, just like Milli can air his opinion about forks. Don't be a hypocrite. And how do you speak for everyone here, that this thread is "inherantly boring"?

the 3-bangers look cheap. as if they're army seconds.

I dumped at the gybe mark in strong winds when I looked up at a Porter Q400 on finals. Can't stop spotting.

C'mon, there are two choices. 3-pronged, 4-pronged. It's not like you can have a wide range of opions. The lack of choice kinda precludes that.

And yeah, ok, i suppose he can posts what he likes.

And despite myself, i'm actually ARGUEING ABOUT FORKS!!

Ah yes, but I hear real men use the two prong hot dog grill serving fork. I take one in with me to TGIFridays for the Jack Daniels Steak and tp scare the server in to free Long Island Ice Teas

O.K. So now we have three choices: the three prong, the four prong, and the two prong grilling fork. But, I might add a few more.
Isn't there a five prong salad fork? Perhaps I am wrong about that, and really it is just another four prong only the size is different.
Also, there is the little three prong seafood fork that usually comes with shell fish and the likes.
And to top it off, we have plastic or metal. Gold toned, or silver toned.
I'm sure there may even be more choices than this, but I can't think of any right now.

Galilee and Fly15. Stop adding extra variable into this thread, lol. We are only discussing the viability of 3 or 4 prong forks.  Big grin

I quite like using 1-pronged forks, also known as chopsticks.

If you're in a restaurant, just remember to work from the left to the right.
