At Spring Chicken we think this is a breakthrough in independent eating. If you're fed up with asking other people to cut up your food, you'll love this. The Knork® (knife and fork in one - clever!), looks like an ordinary fork, so it doesn't look out of place, but it has a bladed edge so you can cut food with one hand. We found the blade effective and easy to master. The packaging in quite good fun and not too difficult to open.
