Our story

Innovative creativity can come from anywhere. And that is what happened the day Mike Miller went to a pizzeria with friends and struggled to eat pizza neatly with a normal fork--while trying to impress the ladies joining them for dinner. He noticed an employee using a pizza slicer, imagined how that functionality could exist on his fork, and the rest is flatware history.

KNORK Flatware is ergonomically designed to correctly fit the way we naturally eat. Its patented design combines innovation and function to produce a complete line of modern flatware designed with comfort, style and stability in mind.

Biodegradable

Lasting only a short time in the landfill. Once the product is thrown away heat, moisture, and bacteria common in landfills begin to eat away at the product. Breaking down cleanly to leave no trace for generations to come.

Our manufacturing process is perfect for using those imperfect pieces!
