In search of a cooking fork!

I am looking for a cooking fork with 4 thin tines - all I can find are the big 2 tined forks. Anyone have any ideas where I can buy one? The one I have now is small with a wooden handle. Thanks.

OK, I'll bite...why do you need a 4 tine fork specifically?

What you have is a "Granny fork"--just an old (sort of antique) fork that used to be to a kitchen set. You can find them at antique malls--and I think something like the Vermont Country Store probably has reproductions. They are great "cooking forks" such as for turning bacon--very sharp tines and close together.

By the way, what is an antique mall?

An old store ;-)

Or maybe a new store with old stuff.

Just happened upon this site:

Not exactly as you described, but these might be useful. In the Product Catalog under Forks:

An antique mall is a collection of shops or booths that sell antiques and collectibles. Sort of like an upscale flea market - usually in a permanent location, and open several days a week. Sometimes they use old shopping malls, sometimes they just build new buildings and split them up into booths.

You are too damn serious.

Nah, still smarting from the blows of those misguided folks who thought we were being smartasses to the "loaf cake" lady. Figured I'd try for something useful this time.
