Actually I think I can see where our differences are.No, I think you’re missing the point, though you’ve tacitly admitted it: taper has nothing to do with function, at least with respect to balance.
you’re asking “is a taper necessary for the flatware to function?” The answer to that is obviously no.
I’m asking “can a taper improve its function?” The answer to that is yes. It is not purely aesthetic. It’s a variable that can be manipulated by a skilled designer to alter the object’s function.
