Millennium Canteen

Brett Payne - Salad Knife and Fork

Hand forged from Sterling Silver, the fork has five tines, the central tine being an extension of the handle with two either side. The handle form is a variation of the conventional pistol grip.
The knife has a stainless steel blade slotted and secured into a hand forged handle. The form of the blade compliments, but does not copy, the curves of the fork.
The design is primarily governed by tactile considerations, the visual appearance of the pieces is not accidental but dependant from how the forms feel in the hand.
Size: 18 cm
