Have you ever sat down to a delicious meal, only to find that you have a dull knife that can't cut your food properly? How do you improvise, assuming no other knives are available?

I just rip stuff apart with my teeth in those cases. It usually works.

I don't use silverware of any sort. Ever.

Usually I cook food to find I have no clean silver wear. :(

I do not know of these social niceties of which you speak.

Chopsticks 'yo.

I stab it with my fork until it can be torn into pieces.

People look at me funny for that >(

Even a blunt serrated knife can tear food apart in a reasonably seemly manner. I just get by. If it's a blunt smooth-edged knife, then it's a little more tricky, so I hold the food down with the knife, and rip chunks off with the fork. If you're subtle, it doesn't look too animalistic.

If my knives get too dull, I usually get my mom to chew up my food and regurgitate it into my mouth.

Like what? What type of food?

Steak? Rip it apart with my teeth like we would have done a million and ten years ago.

Can't think of anything else I eat that needs a knife.

If God/Richard Dawkins had wanted us to use knives to tear up our food, he wouldn't have given us teeth.

I've never had this problem before.

I've never used cutlery cause:

A. Modified, chopped up version of the original food is served.
B. I'm eating with bare hands (I washed OK).
C. I never been in a fancy restaurant that uses a complex way of eating steak.
D. All of the above.

I keep trying to use butter knifes to cut tomatoes when making sandwiches since I can't be bothered getting a sharper one since it means one extra thing to wash up and find that it doesn't work very well and gets tomato all over the place :p

I use my hands like a normal person. Etiquette and manners are imaginary behavioural constructs.

Dull kitchen knives p!$$ me off. :mad2:

You don't need to censor yourself. Let the automatic censor do that. :P

Anyway, I never said how I improvise when my knife sucks. I mutilate the food with my fork until it's small enough to eat. :3

I'm never without extra knives. ;)

Though I suppose if I had to improvise, I'd just use my teeth.
