Have you ever sat down to a fine meal and forgot a knife?
Me neither!
Perfect for cutting your food, then eating!
Introducing the Fife!
The Perfect tool for cutting your food then eating it!
Created by getting a random blade and glue-gunning it to the fork.
Materials used
  • Metal fork
  • Random blade
  • Glue gun and glue sticks
Using it is simple, all you need to do is cut your food with the bottom part, then use the fork as you normally would.


Warning, I am  not responsible for any cuts, sliced lips, etc.

Wow this is really funny! Very interesting! If it were me, I would place that knife blade lower down but this looks more awesome. you could also add a spoon at the bottom of the knife! Good luck with the chindogu contest!

Yes. Well.
What one could do so as not to self-mutilate, would be to glue the blade to the handle just behind the fork's blade. Bend the handle so it follows the curve of the knife's spine.
It's not meant to solve the problem. It's chindogu. Useless invention
Ah, I see. I had looked up the related "chindogu" link but the only entry was ThatKnottyguy's so it didn't help much. I've since checked the 'net and I see what you mean.
Nonetheless, HollyMann also had a similar idea to improve what could become a less "useless invention", so my suggestion must have some merit.
None of this is to denigrate ThatKnottyguy's clever thinking outside the box, of course! Maybe he's actually on to something here...
