    Knife & fork 100% and I hold knife in left hand, fork in right hand (I’m right handed) apparently this is back to front but it’s all Iv ever known….and I can’t for the life of me eat the other way round!

    Def knife & fork

    You can say it as fast as you like, but saying fork & knife too quickly or with an accent can result in a very rude utterance 🙂

    I’m with Lou on this. Must be “knife and fork”. I also do the fork-right, knife-left thing. As a right-hander this led to the description “cack-handed” when I was a kid. Hmmm…

    Knife and fork.  Fork left and knife right, same as DH – even though I’m a South paw and he isn’t.  No idea which of us is ‘correct’ and, frankly, I don’t much care, just as long as it efficiently transfers food from plate to mouth. 😉

    You use plates? how posh are you? 🙂

    Of course when we were young we used to dream of having a plate …………………………..

    “Dream?”  Dream?

    That’s luxury, that’s what that is!  Why, when I were a lad we didn’t waste our time on blummin’ Dreeeaaams.  NO.  We were never allowed to sleep.  Or even catch twenty winks, let alone forty.

    But you try and tell that to the kids today and they won’t believe you . . .

    “When you were a lad” y’mean you had time to be YOUNG? You really don’t know how lucky you are! We were put to work straight out of the maternity ward. Swaddlin’ clothes or not, we were pushed straight down the mine to dig out the steak and kidney pies from deep underground. I’ll bet it were you posh boogers who ate ’em. Pah!
