A polished-looking adaptive utensil brings a sense of dignity to those with dexterity issues who need the extra help, but don’t want to stand out. The ergonomic design feels good in the hand and is easy to maneuver, and because it’s made with stainless steel, it looks more like typical cutlery. A rounded handle is easy to pick up and a flat bottom prevents the knife, fork, or spoon from rolling out of reach.

  • Materials: 18/10 stainless steel (indicates 18% of chromium and 10% of nickel)
  • Care: Dishwasher safe
  • Includes: One adaptive utensil
  • Quality materials ensure durability, a beautiful shine, and a lasting performance
  • Bullet-shaped handle fits perfectly into the palm of the hand and makes it easy to hold
  • Lean transition from handle to bowl allows you to hold it in various positions
  • Hollow ball at the end enables you to securely and comfortably hold the silverware
  • Elevated handle makes it easy to pick up the cutlery from flat surfaces
  • Flattened bottom of the handle ensures the cutlery stays put
  • Red Dot Design Award Winner
  • Made in China
  • Dimensions: Fork: 5.5" x 1.5" x 1.5"; Knife: 6.5" x 1.5" x 1.5"; Spoon: 6" x 1.5" x 1.5"
  • Weight: Fork: 0.19 lb; Knife: 0.25 lb; Spoon: 0.25 lb
    Utensil-specific features:
  • Knife: Flattened top of the knife blade makes it easier to apply pressure when cutting. The light curve at the edge of the blade allows a rocking motion when cutting
  • Fork: Somewhat flat, allowing the user to scrape food onto it. This is a real adaptation from a classic fork design which is shaped for stabbing foods

My dad lost his right thumb and middle finger in a table saw accident -- he struggles at meal time. Or, he did. He loves this fork so much that he bought several complete sets!More > < Less

Bought for 94 yr old neighbor with arthritic fingers. He says it is good.

I bought these because my joints aren't the best and I love them. Very comfortable to grip and eat with


Actually Hard to Use

I bought the spoon for myself, largely because of its graceful shape, for its beauty and because I have trouble finding a spoon size that accommodates my somewhat small mouth while facilitating ingestion of soups and stews.

The spoon itself is a good size but I find the handle so difficult to hold I am not using the utensil.

Didn’t work for us

I thought this beautiful utensil would be helpful for arthritic hands, but the handle and the times were too small for his large adult hands. For him, it was unwieldy to hold . Too bad!More > < Less

About Amefa

Elevated Ease

Amefa’s ergonomic adaptive utensils combine function and finish while adding polish to cutlery that’s typically clunky and industrial-feeling. The pieces are made with stainless steel to blend in better with other flatware on the table and to bring a sense of dignity to those who need the extra help, like folks with dexterity issues.

The utensils are weighted and shaped to feel good and fit perfectly in your hand and have a rounded handle that’s easy to pick up and maneuver. A flat bottom prevents them from rolling out of reach.

This feel-good, look-good approach comes from designer Isabel Heubl, who was inspired to create a better-looking, better-functioning spoon, fork, and knife when she was still in college. Amefa, a staple in the flatware industry since 1931, made her sophisticated designs a reality.
