Why don't many people know how to hold their fork and knife?

Jump to last reply

I don't understand why many people have to switch hands when cutting their food? You never see this in other countries and many Americans don't seem to know how to hold their fork or knife. What's the problem with keeping the fork in the left hand if a knife is involved in the meal?
I have been to many restaurants where well-dressed people look like they're butchering a cow as they cut food and then keep on switching the utensils between hands.
How do you hold your fork and knife?
