I originally wanted this Culinar fork to match my Culinar knives, even though I figured the match would just be a matter of looks rather than functionality. I was wrong. The difference between this fork and other carving forks is even bigger than for the knives.
Perhaps the biggest difference is in the handle. The handle of most carving forks does not fill an average to large size hand. This allows the fork to move a bit even with a firm grip, limiting how well one can hold the roast still. That's only a minor inconvenience for a sirloin or tenderloin roast where one is making vertical slices against the carving board, but can be major annoyance with a larger rib roast or a whole turkey, where some cuts are made horizontally or at other angles.
The handle of this Culinar fork allows a much surer grip, making it a breeze to carve. That's true whether you have large or small hands, thanks to the taper of the handle. The butt end of the handle is quite beefy, but even a toddler can get a sure grip by grasping the narrow end of the handle just below the neck. While the stainless steel of the handle looks smooth, the brushed surface actually makes it less slippery than even composite and wood handles.
This fork has other advantages as well. The tines are straight, making them much easier to place out of the way of the knife, even with more complex cuts. The fork is slightly flattened, allowing parallel slices to be made closer to the tines, as well as reducing the loss of juices while carving. And while the overall length of the fork, at 11 inches (28 cm), is the same as for the equivalent classic Wusthof fork, the tines are a bit longer at about 5 inches (12 cm), permitting better handling of larger roasts. (The "6 inch" measurement in the description includes the length of both tines and neck.)
My wife got me this fork for Chistmas from my wish list, and after carving Christmas dinner with it, I never want to use another carving fork again. If you know someone who regularly makes roasts - or who you would like to make roasts - get them this fork. Or get it for yourself, if you enjoy cooking. You will not regret it!
While this may be too expensive for those on a budget, I have to rate this fork five stars since it is clearly the best in its class.
