Was talking to a person the other day how if they have a meal with someone, the other person must use both knife and fork while eating.  Sounds kind of extreme OCD but I digress.  So how many of you use both knife and fork, or just a fork when eating?

I use both, but it's not an OCD thing.. Just how I was brought up.

Most times I will go for a spoon if I can.Laughing And if a fork is required, then I'll use a fork. But I usually try a avoid using a knife alltogether if I can.

Here's another question:
If you decide to only use a spoon or fork, which hand do you hold it in? Left or Right? And what handedness are you?

For me it's always the right hand. And I'm right handed.  Even though it's "technically/formally" not correct, it just feels more natural. Thoughts?

Mainly fork only use a knife if needed and if it's finger food (e.g pizza, chips) the fingers after I have washed them.

Same here.

I'm glad other people do though, as my partner thought it was a bit odd when we first met, and thought it was the French in me (we all eat with both, mainly use the knife to push stuff on the fork, it's much easier lol) Laughing

Knife and fork for most meals. Spaghetti is Fork and Spoon. Some asian foods is chopsticks.

My wife and I try to eat most meals at the table too ... I think it's important to hold onto that tradition.

(But then I've been accused of being OCD many times ...)

I usually use both; fork in left hand and knife in right (I'm right-handed). As some others have mentioned, I may use just the fork depending on the food and occasion (such as just a fork for pasta at home, but I'd use knife and fork for pasta at a restaurant or with company).

I'm the same - always have to swap cutlery around at restaurants as I'm backwards, even though I'm right handed.

My partner is the same, we are a pair of backwards eaters.
