I am going violate a fundamental principle of mine and post nearly identical topic to one I just posted on the AAAC Forum. Anyway, I have an ongoing dispute with my wife and her son about which is the most correct and genteel fork to use when eating fish. We don't own dedicated fish forks. In their absence, I say that the lighter, more delicate "salad" forks are most appropriate. They favor the large, heavy forks that we would use for eating steak. This seems crude and subpar to me. Any of the SFers have strong convictions on this?
