    How many eating utensils can you come up with for proper dining etiquette?

    I know that there is such a thing as an asparagus fork used so that you don't tear the tender tips off the asparagus when serving. An escargot fork and tongs are necessary for tenderly cooked snails. What strange utensils for eating foods are you aware of and how many are there?

    crab cracker (also known as a lobster cracker or crab claw cracker) is a specialized food utensil, similar in construction (and sometimes appearance) to certain types of nutcrackers, used to crack the hard shells of crabs and lobsters by pulling the two handles together to access the flesh inside, while preparing or eating them.

    A lobster pick or lobster fork is a long, narrow food utensil used to extract meat from joints, legs, claws, and other small parts of a lobster. Lobster picks are usually made of stainless steel and weigh as much as an average teaspoon. They have a long, textured cylindrical handle, ending in a crescent-shaped moderately sharp pick, or else a small two-tined fork. The other end may have a spoon for scooping out meat from inside the lobster.The lobster pick can also be used with other seafood, such as crab and crawfish.
