The Heretic’s Fork – Cutlery Gone Wrong

heretics fork

Sometimes we push the limits of the definition of “cutlery” here at The Cutlery Review. We don’t post about knives much because they are a world unto themselves. It’s like the world of wine but we don’t like red, you get it? So cutlery sometimes includes kitchen gadgets, sometimes it’s things that hold cutlery. It’s our blog and we blog about what we want and most of the time it’s cutlery, flatware, utensils, tableware, silverware or whatever it’s called at home. Whether it’s a fork, spoon, knife, spork or knork we’ll cover it.

But we acknowledge that this time we are pushing it a little. I mean, it is a fork. Just look at the picture above. It’s a nice shiny chrome fork. But how it’s used is rather medieval, actually it’s actually medieval. How it is used puts the “evil” in medieval. You looked ahead to the next picture didn’t you? Cheater.

So ya, that’s how it’s to be used.

Here’s the definition:

“A medieval torture device which consisted of a two-sided fork which would be strapped to the victims neck so that any movement of the jaw caused extreme pain.”

Nice huh? Not something we would want to wear. Oh, you do? OK, we don’t judge. What ever you do with your cutlery at home is your business.

Here’s a link to buy a nice fancy one (ADULTS ONLY):

Babish has a Tiny Whisk

Babish has a Tiny Whisk and he’s proud of it. We’ve talked about Babish and his Tiny Whisk before here at The Cutlery Review. And now he’s talking about it again with NYT Cooking in the video “10 Things Binging With Babish Can’t Cook Without” which is shown above. He starts talking about his Tiny Whisk at the 3:25 mark if you want to jump ahead. He also shows off his famous “Tiny Whisk Tattoo”!

We noticed he has a full set of whisks, he doesn’t discriminate. After looking all over at all types of whisks we feel this is the best match to his set. These are the HONBAY Mini Wire Kitchen Whisks.

But if you aren’t buying your whisks for Babish Cosplay (we know you are out there) and want something more kitchen worthy, we would suggest going with the DRAGONN Set of 3 Stainless Steel Whisks with Silicone handles as they are a little more serious.

Tiny Whisk or Flat Whisk?

Tiny Whisk or Flat Whisk? Let’s see what top YouTube cooks think…

Babish loves his Tiny Whisk. As seen below:

And J. Kenji López-Alt kind of infers that he started the Tiny Whisk craze first:

So the Tiny or Mini whisk seems to be a popular choice for kitchen cutlery by these two fine gents.

But….we here at The Cutlery Review recommend the flat whisk. It fits flat pans better, it will conform to any bowl, and it just seems work better. Amazing for cooking salsas! Try it for yourself.

Curved Flatware by Object Rights

Curved Flatware by Object Rights

Do not attempt to adjust the picture. We are controlling transmission. If we wish to make the cutlery rounder, we will make it rounder. If we wish to make it softer, we will tune it to a whisper. We will control the horizontal. We will control the vertical. We control your cutlery.

Weird huh!? The guys over at Object Rights have designed this rounded flatware. Every knife, fork and spoon is fit to the circle of your plate.

“Curved Flatware” is a set of eating utensils. Ergonomic design helps to reduce wrist pressure.

Materials:
3d printed steel, bronzed finish, hand-polished
Dimensions (each):
Width- 5 cm (2”)
Height- 2.5 cm (1”)
Depth- 19 cm (7-½”)

It’s $300 for a 4 piece set but it looks amazing, not sure how it handles though?
