    Guys, these are antiques! Circa 1960. I found a supply, however fairly limited, of forged 1084 forks, that I have 8 more of right now, and can get a few more. They come to me rough, well rough is a nice way to describe them. I have some to sell if there is any interest. I wanted to get all my sources sorted out, before I described these too much, in case things fell through, this would have stayed with me. Now I would like to make some of them available. These will not be made again at the foundary, and have been sitting in a box for more than 50 years!

    Can't argue with old 1084 as a suitable fork material.

    All right, the forks are coming!!!! My fork is done and Pierre just sent me a few pics, just to make me drool. The handle is curly Koa, can't wait to get it and slice up something! Pics follow.






    As you can see, he did a fabulous job and the wood is just beautiful. Thank you again Pierre.
