Description

The Knork is a unique and functional utensil that allows people with limited dexterity to cut and eat food easily with one hand. In reality this beautiful utensil is unlike anything else on the market. And the proof is in the use. Incorporating critical modifications to the ages old fork design, the Knork enables a user to both cut and spear food using only one utensil - and one hand.

Features
  • This fork head is able to cut easily by rocking it on the curved edge with out being sharp or serrated.
  • The finger platform has a greater area on both sides of the neck to allow for more comfort and less effort when cutting food.
  • The contoured handle adds stability to the cutting function when being used in the left or right hand.

History

History
Evolution of the Knork

Mike Miller first thought of the idea while eating pizza with a group of friends. Trying to eat pizza with a normal fork, he realized what a struggle it was and how uncomfortable it felt. The challenge of neatly slicing pizza in a manner capable of impressing girls was what led Mike to conceptualize the Knork. Once he saw an employee cutting pizzas in the back with a pizza cutter and taking pictures of people of all ages using a regular fork, Mike combined all this into one utensil that was suitable for all ages and right or left handed users. The idea then sat for four years until graduating from high school.

After attending a few years at Kansas State University with a medical degree in mind, the idea for the Knork still remained. Being 20 years old at the time, he decided to return home to Wichita and take business classes at Wichita State University. Mike's first step was establishing parent company Phantom Enterprises in October 2000. He then pursued a patent by researching and developing a prototype. Using one of his mother's forks as a base, he used Bondo, a car modeling compound, to create a model. Today, the Knork is properly patented, produced and marketed and is on the 'cutting edge'!

Knork Expansion

At the beginning of 2004, Knork Flatware came up with a matching place setting, which includes a steak/butter knife, place knork, salad knork, tablespoon, and teaspoon. Every piece of Knork Flatware is uniquely designed with comfort and stability in mind. The first shipment of the entire line arrived in July 2004. Knork Flatware has recently added to its line a serving set and a set of steak knives. We are continuously coming up with new products to expand our product line. Coming soon are Iced tea spoons and a gravy ladle. Stay up to date with our latest productivity by coming back to our website.

Knork Flatware will continue to strive towards its goal by creating products and inventions to help simplify everyday life.

Faq

Will the Knork cut you? No, it is not a sharp or serrated edge. it is a combination of several modifications that allow the Knork to cut without harming the user. The rounded, thinned tines create a beveled edge that allows the user to use a rocking motion to cut through foods. The finger platform provides comfort and leverage while using the fork to cut.

Is the Knork for left and right handed users? Yes, the finger platform and rounded, thinned tines flank both sides of the utensil.

Care

Stainless steel can last a lifetime with proper care. Avoid soaking for prolonged periods, damp storage conditions, abrasive cleaners and steel wool. Use a non lemon scented detergent and dry after washing. Stains and spots can be removed with a soap cloth or stainless steel cleaner.

Great investment!

My family and I tried the KNORK for a couple of weeks and decided we really liked it! My son has mobility issues and cannot easily manipulate a knife and fork, so this unusual piece of flatware is much easier for him to cut and pick up his food using only one hand. At first glance this looks like an ordinary fork. However, when you turn it sideways you will see the head of the fork has a uniquely designed "finger platform" so that pressure can be applied without any discomfort to the fingertip. The outer tines are broad, beveled, and curved so the KNORK can easily cut through food, but isn't sharp enough to cause an injury. They are fairly expensive, but they are made to last forever. A worthy investment!

Makes mealtime so much easier. I rarely now ever find a need for a knife and cutting board. It's great for a person who only can make use of one-hand for normally tender foods. It does not work well for a steak or the hard casing on some sausages.

Great Product!

The knork is very well made, nice and heavy, able to cut through most meats except steaks. We use them as everyday dinnerware. Would highly recommend.
