Who uses fish knives in this day and age? That was the “debate” topic in the Telegraph the whole of this week!!! It was started by a reader who wrote in to say that they received a set of fish knives as a wedding present when they got married 50 years ago and that they never have been used. Needless to say others started writing to either agree or disagree that Fish Knives are obsolete.
My favourite letter was from a gentleman who replied as follows:-
“I cut my meat with a knife and flake my fish with a fish knife”
Bravo! Well said!!! I still use the fish knife and I proud to use it. In fact almost all the friends up in the Scottish Highlands still use the fish knife!!!
