6. Properly, but with a subtle overtone of scornful disquiet and mephitic jejuneness
Edited on Thu Jul-17-08 08:56 PM by Rabrrrrrr

Seriously, though - I tend toward the European fashion of knife in one hand and fork in the other, and not switch hands after cutting (I'm right handed, and hold the knife in my right hand). Americans tend to do the fork switching as you do. If I am eating something that only needs a fork and no knife, then I tend to hold the fork in my right hand. I also use chopsticks with my right hand.

And yes, it is standard to have the knife hand be one's significant hand. But, you know, go with what works - the hand you use isn't important; what's important is whether you hold it properly (using your fork and first finger), or like an animal (wrapping all your fingers around the handle).
