In the Middle Ages, cutlery was very different from what we know today. Medieval cutlery played a crucial role in everyday life and on the table of kings.

Over the centuries, these utensils have evolved in form and function. In this article, we will explore the fascinating history of medieval cutlery and how they came to be essential elements of our meals.

The Knife: From Combat to the Table

The knife was the first element to be incorporated into modern cutlery during the Middle Ages. Although legend attributes the appearance of the table knife to Cardinal Richelieu in 1630, the reality is that medieval diners were already using it to cut food. To prevent it from becoming a weapon, some monarchs, such as Charles III of Spain, prohibited its use on public roads. This marked the difference between the knife as a kitchen utensil and as a weapon.

In the 19th century, known as the "golden age" of the knife, most of the knives and folding knives we know today emerged. Cities such as Solingen in Germany and Albacete in Spain specialized in its manufacture. As the 20th century progressed, the introduction of new materials and manufacturing processes transformed knife production.

The Spoon: From Shells to Table Utensil

The history of the spoon dates back to primitive times, where mollusk shells and wooden or bone spoons were used. In Mesopotamia and Egypt, spoons had carved handles and were used in medical or ceremonial activities. The term "spoon" comes from ancient Rome, where there was a utensil called "cochlea" with a thin handle that allowed pieces of food to be pricked.

Until the 19th century, the spoon and knife were the only utensils used in meals, and their manufacture focused on wood for the less wealthy classes. Starting in the 14th century, spoons acquired the current shape we know.

The Fork: From Scandalous to Elegance

The fork, unlike other cutlery, has a relatively recent history. In medieval Europe, people often ate with their hands, and etiquette treaties encouraged using three fingers to touch food, leaving the little finger and ring finger unused. The fork arrived in Venice from Constantinople in the 11th century, but its use was considered scandalous and even "diabolical."

It was Catherine de' Medici who made it fashionable at the French court in 1533, and from there, its form evolved. It went from a single spike to two spikes, and in the 17th century the third spike became widespread. In Italy, a fourth tip was added to suit the spaghetti meal. Finally, in the 18th century, the fork we know today in Germany was developed.

Medieval Cutlery: A Journey in Time

The history of medieval cutlery is a fascinating narrative that reflects the evolution of society and technology over the centuries. From its humble beginnings to its current sophisticated form, cutlery has witnessed a historic journey. Who would have imagined that something as common as a knife, spoon or fork would have such a rich history?
