There’s a knife fork hybrid called the knork!

While the spork has achieved praise from airplane regulars around the world, few know about its cousin, the knork! Combining the cutting aspect of a knife with the puncturing aspect of a fork, the knork was actually invented for those without one hand, allowing them to cut their food without aid. 

It was never formally introduced to the market, but its origins can be traced back hundreds of years. Horatio Nelson, who lost his right arm, is said to have used a knork, inviting the nickname the “Nelson fork,” which dates the knork all the way back in 1797!
