I was having dinner recently with my family, and my 5 year-old nephew was only interested in using his spoon. However, I’d like to believe that a fork that looked like a hand would have prompted some fork usage that night.
Designed by Keisuke Tsubakimoto, his thumb fork was designed to remind diners about the people who prepared the food that they were eating, so as to move the diners away from mere consumption to a greater appreciation for the food.
While I’m not entirely sure if the addition of the thumb increases the functionality of the fork, damn if it doesn’t look cool.
