To hold the fork properly take the end

then clasp your thumb and tinkers

Why Do You Buy
If not to please those for whom you buy? Then select wisely when
you buy. Consider quality first, for quality counts most. If the price
is an object, speak up. So complete a stock do I carry, my friends and
patrons tell me, (and so great is this variety), that they have little dif
ficulty in choosing their Christmas gifts. When in doubt,
anyway, and let's talk it over.
