Hugh Jackman’s Wolverfork

hugh jackman wolverfork

Hugh Jackman is known for playing the comic book X-Men character Logan aka Wolverine. And one of his recent Instagram posts had this interesting piece of cutlery for us all to wonder about.

Is it a fork or a threek? “Forks have four tines; tridents have three. One is for eating; the other is for ruling the sea.”

This killer flatware looks to be some solid adamantium construction.

Any of our cutlery readers know where to source this fork from?

Yup, the company name is all lower case: “mono” and like their name they keep their cutlery simple. We really do like flatware with rings at the end around here. It’s easy to hang on a nail. pot rack or cutlery stand and just looks really nice.

“German flatware maker mono has brought back the iconic mono Ring Cutlery Set. Missing since 1994, this set offers uniqueness, practicality, design and functionality all in one. Originally produced in 1962, this flatware set was made an instant classic in Germany, designed by Peter Raacke and redesigned by Mark Braun.”

Produced from the highest quality German steel the 5 piece set includes: Table Fork, Table Knife, Table Spoon and Teaspoon.

Ball of TinFoil for Sparkling Cutlery? Truth or Hoax?

Ball of TinFoil for Sparkling Cutlery? Truth or Hoax?

OK fellow flatware and cutlery experts out there. This TikTok video about leaving your silverware sparkling is everywhere. We need to talk about it.

It is proposed that a chemical reaction occurs between the aluminum and the ingredients in the dishwasher tablet. The foil itself doesn’t clean the cutlery, but as the tablet dissolves it reacts with the metal and shines the cutlery.

Rumor has it that the baking soda in the tablets is what does the powerful cleaning effect. These two components (and with water) remove silver sulfide – also known as tarnish – through an electrochemical reaction in warm water. We’ve talked about this before at this post.

But one big question: Wouldn’t this happen anyways if you had some cast aluminum cookware in the dishwasher?

And one big point to make: This works for only SILVERWARE not for regular stainless steel cutlery and the like. Your regular day to day scratched up forks, knives and spoons are going to get sparkling shiny for this hack.

Have a nice a sparkling day!

PS – That ball of foil will bounce around and likely land in the bottom and jam up your sprayer.
