Knives have probably the longest history of any human artefacts and, with forks, are possibly the most used and taken for granted. In this book the history and development of their use as eating implements is traced from the earliest times and some hitherto unknown styles used in the Middle Ages are revealed. The art of the cutler is covered, as are the gradual introduction of the table fork and the evolution of the trio of knife, fork and spoon during the early eighteenth century.
