Fourchette à découper TRIDENS made in France

Story of carving fork

Histoires Françaises has selected for you a new kitchen utensil, essential for all budding or expert chefs!

This is the cutting fork of the brand TRIDENS, a unique fork due to its design, its ingenuity and its maneuverability; designed with a shorter central tooth to block a bone when the larger teeth, on either side, prevent it from moving.

TRIDENS is a young company that has invented THE new carving fork.

This innovation was born from the association of ingenious and creative minds of a woman and a man : Christine and that of David. During a stay in Guyana, they rediscovered the pleasures of barbecue and grilling. Back in France, looking into the subject, they noticed a lack of "tool" suitable for cutting pieces of meat or poultry. So they decided to go for it.

As in France, the table is an art, they particularly worked on the design of the object, with an industrial designer. They wanted to bring extreme care to the ergonomics of the object while giving it a unique style. It has been designed to be suitable for both right-handers and left-handers. This carving fork thus offers a grip of exceptional quality and comfort.

Then their challenge was to choose the right material. Stainless steel was the obvious choice to make it an irreproachable kitchen utensil in terms of hygiene. Indeed, stainless steel has the best fire resistance of all metallic materials. It resists very (very) high temperatures and on top of that it does not emit any toxic fumes. This is why it is found a lot in restaurant kitchens, it is a perfect and very suitable application. The stainless steel is constantly protected by a passivation layer of chromium oxide which forms over its entire surface, in a natural way, during the association of chromium with humidity in the air. This is what makes it very resistant to corrosion. Stainless steel is therefore very hygienic, thanks to its resistance to corrosion which allows it to resist attacks from food fats, for example thanks to this famous protective layer which is reconstituted in the air.

Finally Christine and David had to find the right partners to give substance to their idea in France of course because they could not conceive of manufacturing elsewhere. After extensive research, they found a precision foundry locally, near Nantes, capable of producing their new generation carving fork. Christine and David then worked on the carving fork support. Thus they offer 2 possibilities: one in solid wood, with 2 notches to accommodate pepper, salt or spices of all kinds; the other in stainless steel like the fork. Both particularly invested in an eco-responsible approach, have decided to entrust the realization of the wooden presentation base to an ESAT. And to go further in this same approach, the wood used to make these bases is French wood from sustainably managed forests (PEFC).

Today this design carving fork is the star of many tables for individuals and professionals alike, in France and in Europe.
