modern cutlery with unique polish
A fork with 5 prongs
This novelty was celebrated in professional circles as a sensational innovation. Carl Pott's aim with this design was a practical widening of the fork's blade. This makes it easier to pick up sauces and vegetables (peas do not fall off so quickly). The food stays better overall. The number of tines therefore had to be increased so that the individual tines were not unnecessarily and unattractively wider or the distances between them not functionally wide. This clearly structured cutlery shape was given a special accent by a fine horizontal groove at the end of the handles: The dot on the i - the small narrow transverse line at the end of the handle, which does not interfere with the smooth, clear, geometric shape.
The Modell 33 is one of Carl Potts' great successes, a perennial favourite, evergreen, which has won numerous awards. It has been included in all the arts and crafts museums in Germany.
