Snail forks are often times considered to be synonymous with cocktail forks although they are quite different. Although it is possible to serve snails with a cocktail fork, the experience is complete when you use snail forks to serve this garlicky delicacy. Snail forks have two, long spear-like tines that make grabbing a morsel of snail incredibly easy. This type of fork is pretty much only used to consume snails in the shell or from an escargot dish, as the shape is not conducive to consuming other shell fish or mollusks. When setting a place at your table, the snail fork goes to the right of the soup spoon which is on the right hand side of the plate; this is unusual as most other forks are located to the left of a plate.
We sell snail forks from the top restaurant supply brands to ensure that you can find the utensil that best fits your décor. Although there is more than just the silverware pattern to consider when selecting a set of snail forks for your restaurant supplies or hotel silverware, namely the stainless steel quality. 18/10 stainless steel and 18/8 stainless steel both contain a bit of nickel in their alloy, this means that flatware made of this type of stainless steel is much stronger; it will not easily bend or be scratched. If your restaurant needs to save a bit of money, consider a set of dessert forks in 18/0 stainless steel, it is less durable but much more affordable and it is available in many style to suit formal, modern and casual décor.
