I can walk in to any thrift shop and find these carving forks galore. Go to an antique store and you will find sets of knife and forks from estate sales. I once saw a sterling silver set that was priced well below what you pay in the jewelry store. It was even in the presentation case. There are ones with the stag horn handles galore out there almost for the taking.
I personally prefer to go to the Salvation Army Thrift Stores. They train handicap folks to repair and to be on the selling floor. I have two that are accessable to me. One up on Route One. That is a hugmongous store. And the one in Chelsea reflects the community. The merchandise is of lesser quality and cost less.
