Phorqicillin / Fork

Phorqicillin
Phorqicillin

To make the fork cleaner,we introduce a bend onto the middle tine of a fork, creating a curve that prevents it from staying in the plane shared by the two outer tines. This dislocation makes all the faces between tines reachable for fingertips or scouring pads during washing, while no major alteration in material and manufacturing process involved,which makes it easy to produce and function without changing users’ habits of using forks. Now one can eradicate the grease easily without making efforts to clean those hard-to-reach tiny narrow slits.
