At the risk of stating the obvious: the point of a fork is to transfer food to your mouth.

Perhaps you are referring to the tines.

You will first need to fill the fork completely with fork oil. Fork should be collapsed with the fork spring removed. Bleed the air out of the inner cartridge by slowly cycling the damper rod through it's full stroke. From this point you can set the oil level to the correct height measured from the top of the outer fork tube. Factory specs are: Minimum Height: 155mm Standard Height: 139mm Maximum Height: 117mm

The proper way to use a fork is to hold it in the left hand (this makes no difference if you are left or right handed) as if it were an extension of your index finger. The handle will run along your extended index finger and the but of the fork will rest somewhere in the midpoint on the heel of your hand. The tines of the fork should point downward. It is not proper to use the fork like a shovel. Should you have something soft that you cannot pierce with the tines, such as mashed potatoes, use your knife to spread the food onto the back of the fork.

If there is a salad being served there should be a short fork and a longer fork. The short fork is for the salad and the longer fork is for eating your main meal.

When eating your salad first you would eat with the salad fork (the smallest fork) and after you finish place the fork on the plate. When the entree comes then you use the normal size fork.
