This fork is the result of the walnut forks handle being broken. This happened a LONG time ago and the “fork” just laid into the shop until today when it met up with the maple handle. Where the 2 woods are joined is covered with very thin jute cord affixed with CA glue. The joint was good and strong but I just didnt like the look of it and the jute cord remedied that. It’s 10” long and will make a great utensil for hors d’oevures. Thanks for the looks and comments.

Way cool. I like the wood combos and design of the fork. Looks ceremonial.
