Not a "go out to dinner" guy, due mostly to finances.  last weekend I had to splurge and was appalled at the cutlery.



I used my fucking Benchmade 9555 for a steak knife, as the only thing provided was a butter knife and the fork was one that seemed "disposable".  



Is there a classier way than bringing a set from home wrapped in a 'Pow/Mia' kerchief?

Ahhhh...knife and fork?  Utensils?

Ermm, hmm.


How about a Case Hobo?

Should have neck punched the waiter until he gave you better cutlery.

Some Scottish dirks come with a fork and a small steak knife that ride in the same sheath...

Keep the knife and fork away from your perineum.
Just do it. You'll thank me later.

I usually keyster a titanium spork, easy to discretely slip past most restaurant's metal detectors.  Remember to tie the lanyard TIGHT so you don't lose it up there, I'll never get that four hours of my life back.

Case® Hobo with Spoon
The Hobo is a really old design. It actually began as an eating knife and a spike for lifting morsels, sheathed with a larger knife. The next step was to put a fork and a knife in a folder. Then they worked out methods of separating them. No one knows how long ago that was, only that it followed the invention of forks. I have seen really old ones with two tines. I have also seen them with spoons almost as big as ladles.

Kids.... Back in the day, we did that just because. If you won't ever use it, what's the point of having an EDC?

I lost my spork at a hotel and haven't bought another one yet....should I splurge and go Ti or be cheap and go plastic?

For years my father would pull out his properly sharpened pocket knife when we went out to eat. The crap they give you is a joke.

I'm actually not sure why he stopped doing it to be honest. I'm surprised he doesn't break out the matching set of Randall knife and fork....

Get the titanium one, that way you won't feel out of place at a high end restaurant.

Several years ago I actually wrote an article about this. My best pick was the folding AG Russell Fruit Tester. Easy to carry, large enough to do the job and very handsome looking.

I use my EDC knife, well, everyday. I use it to cut shit, pick my finger nails and teeth as well as assorted other manly shit. I use to eat when I'm at the huntin' camp or maybe even my backyard. I have yet to use it to cut up my food at a real restaurant. Guess I'm a pussy.

How about saving up, and when going out for steak, go to a place that at least will give you the appropriate cutlery?  You know, like Outback, or Olive Garden?

The Mexican joint had steak and I wasn't in the mood for Fajitas.   It wasn't some fancy schmancy place like Olive Garden.  



I have seen a cased knife and fork set, I thought here,  and as I am particular about my cutlery thought of bringing my own when going out to eat.

Didn't realize using your pocket knife to cut food at a eatery was such a big deal. My grandfather and father both did it regularly. I never thought twice about doing it either.

That is sort of what I was remembering.  



My wife spoiled me when she spent ridiculous money on flatware a few years back.  Our cutlery could double as a bludgeon and I am disappointed when using inferior utensils.
