Description of the Product

This medieval cutlery set is composed of a knife, a spoon, a pick and a fork. The knife is one of mankind’s most primitive inventions, and the spoon has been with us since the Neolithic period. Compared to these, the fork is a downright modern invention, although even it does date from Classical antiquity. The use of “the devils tool” did not, however, spread in medieval Europe ruled by Christianity. If people wished not to use their hands, they would use the eating pick to skewer their food and raise it to their mouth. Although the fork itself already existed at the time, it was commonly used only as a serving utensil. In spite of, or perhaps due to, the association of the fork with a luxurious and decadent lifestyle, the personal eating fork did not become commonplace in Europe until after the middle Ages, in the 18th century.

All items are hand-forged out of stainless steel and suitable to use even in our modern times. We recommend that you clean them thoroughly prior to first use. The four items of this set may be easily tied together with a leather strap (comes with the set) and carried for example on your belt. Length of utensils: approx. 22 cm.

Paikkakunnalla ollessani ja keskiajasta kiinnostuneena täällä oli pakko käydä. Aivan upea ja todella monipuolinen kauppa! Ystävällinen ja mukava myyjä neitonen esitteli minulle Etelä -Tirolilaisen mallin mukaan taidokkaasti valmistettua kypärää, josta tein myös kaupat. Liikkeen omistaja ei myöskään säästänyt vaivojaan esitellessään minulle haarniskavarustuksen eri osia. Erittäin asiakaslähtöistä palvelua! On todella hienoa, että tällaisia erikoisliikkeitä maastamme vielä löytyy, tämäkin kuulemma ainoa laatuaan. On varmaa, että vierailen tässä liikkeessä toistekkin! Täältä löytää uskomattoman paljon myös koriste-esineiksi ja lahjoiksi sopivia tavaroita, joten suosittelen tätä kaikille sellaisiakin etsiville.
