Just something i was thinking about today... do left handed people hold their knives and forks in opposite hands than right handed people?

oops...sorry...couldn't be bothered to edit my last post.....to answer your question though I believe the answer is YES....cos every time I go to a restaurant and change the knives and forks around they always say...'ahh...you must be left handed'....

I would guess that depends how strong their hand dominance is.  I eat basically with whatever hand is closest to the food.  Cutting meat is done mostly done with the right hand, but the rest of the meal, could use either one equally as comfortably.
