The Global G-13, 6.5 inch curved carving fork, is a perfect match for any of Global's carving knives.
This fork is used for holding meat when it is cut into pieces. It can also be used for taking out food from deep pots and ovens.
As with their knives, Global uses a hollow handle which is then filled with just the right amount of sand to create the correct balance for this carving fork. Global uses this method of balancing for two reasons. First, it is a far more precise than using a tang and a bolster. Second, Asian knives typically do not have bolsters, since they only serve as a hindrance to cutting and sharpening.
The carving fork is made of 18/10 stainless steel. The prongs are slightly flexible.
Great carving fork

I recently purchased a Chef's knife to be used for the occasional carving of turkey at my home. Because it's such a beautifully made utensil, I decided to get a complimentary fork to aid while using it. Though I have such a fork, I felt one from the same company would be a more ideal and aesthetically pleasing way to go. I couldn't be happier. It holds great, has the right angulation so as not to obstruct my view while carving and is a beautiful companion to the knife!

We have built up a collection of global knives and the addition of this fork is perfect. It is very solid, has nice long strong tines. No bending. Highly recommend.
