We were taught growing up a golden eating etiquette rule which says â€œDon't eat with your fingers.â€ But looking at the submissions for the Dining in 2015 contest, I guess that etiquette is about to change. Four entries revolved around the use of fingers as cultry utinsels. A few more designs utilized pens, pencils or chopsticks in a similar manner. I prefer the finger designs; you may forget your pen or pencil, but you always have your fingers!
We have Fingers, which Italian designer Alberto Ghirardello describes as "a cutlery set you can use with phalanxes. It is made in strong plastic material, with an silicon insert on the interior side: that gives to the cutlery more grip and comfort ." We also have similar designs such as eat with your fingers by Key portilla-kawamura & Ali Ganjavian from spain, Finger Cutlery by Jie Zhu from china, and schnittstelle by Mijalkovic milan & Urbanek katharina from Austria.
