I think they're call sporks these days.

I have an entire set of "Runcible" spoons or sporks and lots of single sporks...I like finding odd ones.

Good idea. Those microplanes are tough on the knuckles. They just seem more bloodthirsty than most of my kitchen stuff.

I took an empty paper towel roll, taped over one of the openings and keep my microplane in that. I don't scrape my knuckles when I am looking for something in the drawer.

I also had Spike get a piece of wood that would fit in my hand. He cut about about six nails in it leaving them sticking out and then cut off the heads. If I have a lot of something small, I use it to grab the food and use it for the microplane. Saves my fingers.

The microplane graters will eat your knuckles. They are horribly sharp.

Another good reason to have cut resistant gloves on hand in the kitchen. I use them for grating (I have 3 Microplane graters, and I have not yet lost any skin to them), for mandoline slicing, and they work well for getting a grip on the sliver skin when peeling it from the backside of a rack of ribs.

After using and getting to know how to make them work for me. I would also have to agree with cast iron. It’s almost limitless to use and create with.

Second possible would be a meat mallet. Style is up to the user. It sure beats a empty wine bottle I used in the past, But hey it worked.
