How to use utensils?

Just wondering. I always keep my fork in my right hand (dominant) and knife in the left, but when I have to cut something, I always switch so that I'm cutting with my dominant hand, and then switch back when I'm done cutting.
I sort of feel like a moron doing this but it works for me. Do people normally cut using their non-dominant hand? Or they keep the fork in their non-dominant hand?

I've also never had a meal that costed more than $25.

      Thank you for the first actual answer to my question.
      So you always keep fork in left and knife in right? Is this the common strategy that normal people use? I will give it a try.

        The rules around this are stupid.
        Did you know that when eating at a steakhouse, you are supposed to hold the fork in your left hand, knife in right hand, then cut off a piece of steak. And then SWITCH the fork from left to right hand, eat the piece of steak, and then switch back again, to repeat.
        This is the "proper" way to eat at a steakhouse. It's ridiculous, but then again so is every stupid etiquette rule made up by the wealthy whites.

          Who the frick is checking how you use your utensils? As long as you're not doing anything too weird I'm sure nobody gives a frick

            The people who invited you to eat at the steakhouse.
            This is a form of status-signalling.
            It's basically a shit-test to identify the poors from the wealthy.
            It's ridiculous, but they have many of these stupid tests/signals.

              Just use the continental style when you're around those boojey wasps, and revert back to eating with your hands when you're back in the hood.
              Or do whatever it is poors do with their plasticware

            like many things it's a holdover from a different time, it was considered the 'proper' way to eat because it showed you weren't gluttonous and could eat in a civilized manner.

          IF this is true, you are probably moronic. I've down this naturally my whole life. But then again I'm not a Black person.

        Use most demanding utensil with most dominant hand. It's not difficult and it should be intuitive. What's so hard about sticking a fork in meat, cutting, and then raising fork to your mouth? Why do you switch hands to do that?

        If fork and knife, keep knife in non dominant and fork in dominant. If only one utensil, keep in dominant.

          Meant the reverse. Knife is dominant and fork in non dominant

    left middle finger cradling upper handle of fork, index finger and thumb support, arch of the tines facing away from you, wrist angled so fork is facing straight down. knife in right hand, index finger along the spine of the handle, pincer grip with middle and thumb, wrist angled slightly down, about a 20 degree angle relative to the plate

    your handedness means nothing compared to proper table manners

      I do the same as you, OP. It works and I'm not trying to impress anyone with how I hold a fork lmao

      >table manners
      poor people imitating rich people because they want to look more important, while actual rich people are far more relaxed about it

        A person with class will notice improper etiquette, but it is improper to embarrass a person for it. It is however proper to quietly exclude low class people from events and job opportunities.

    I believe the hierarchy from "Most British" to "Most American" is:
    Knife always in dominant hand (right), fork in non-dominant (left), tines ALWAYS pointed down > Knife in DH, fork in non-DH > Knife held in NDH, fork in DH and swapping as the need to cut arises > Knife in DH to cut, and set down to eat with the fork alone between cuts

    There's the English style and the Continental style
    Continental is knife right, fork left
    English switches back and forth because during the age of manor houses, people would throw huge parties and invite tons of people over to eat multi-course meals
    They sat too close together and did not have room to use both hands except briefly, so they started switching hands so that they wouldn't bump into other guests

    Switching hands is stupid and makes you look stupid when you do it. Is your left hand really so useless that you can't do anything with it, and you need to use your right hand for every task? Knife in right hand, fork in left, and keep them there.
