History: Horn Spoon Medieval Feast Gear is mentioned in the Museum of London's Knives and Scabbards.
Five hundred years ago, neither hosts nor inns provided guests with eating utensils. "Members of the upper class never traveled without their own set of cutlery," Sara Coffin, curator of 17th- and 18th-century decorative arts at the Smithsonian’s Cooper-Hewitt, National Design Museum in New York City.
People used to carry their own cutlery and ate with a pricker, knife, and spoon before the wide use of the fork. The pricker was used to hold the food down, the knife to cut it, and eaten using the spoon. This is based on existing sets of knife and pricker, from all over Europe.
