The Victorians loved their pies, both meat and fruit filled, therefore the Pie Fork was an important piece of the place setting. The distinguishing feature of the fork is the wider left cutting tine. You can find Pie Forks in two sizes, large and small. Sometimes the smaller ones are referred to as "Pickle Forks" in certain patterns. The larger forks range in size from 7 to 7 1/2 inches (approximately) and the smaller ones between 5 3/4 and 6 1/2 inches (approximately).
