The oyster fork is a small utensil most often found in casual dining settings, particularly at restaurants which serve seafood. Unlike a standard dinner fork which has 4 tines, the oyster fork is made with 3 short wide curved tines, intended to assist in cutting the membrane that connects the oyster to its shell. This seafood fork can be used to spear seafood served in a compote or a shell, such as shrimp cocktail. Also called a cocktail fork, the informal oyster fork is a specialty flatware item that may not be necessary for every restaurant, but its small size lends itself to other uses, like eating desserts. The medium weight Dominion commercial silverware collection is made of durable stainless steel with a mirror finish. Its classic design will fit in with any restaurant or bar decor.
