do y'all remember the poem, "The Owl and the Pussycat" and one of the last stanzas "they dined on mince and slices of quince eaten with a runcible spoon (fork and spoon combo).....in 4th grade I thought it an unusual name but I use mine today all the time.......I love it........

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.
