description

The flesh fork is used to take pieces of meat or bacon from a saucepan or to attach them to roast them on the fire.

It is a fork with two, sometimes three tines and a long - often hook-shaped - handle (30 to 80 cm). It is usually made entirely of iron.

See also the toasting fork. [MOT]
