Before forks became common across Europe during the 17th and 18th centuries, people used eating awls. Eat like a medieval nobleman with the Veit Wrought Iron Awl. This elegant awl is made of dark wrought iron. Beautiful twists adorn the top handle portion of the awl including the ring at the top. The torqued ring is both a decorative feature and a functional one, you can use it for attaching or hanging it for ease of access. While designed for eating, you can use the awl for leather working, but sharpening the point may be necessary for that purpose. It is a wonderful eating instrument and a great prop for historical reenactments or Renaissance faires.
