This doesn’t feel quite as robust as other forks in our test, but it’s still very strong. It has two smooth, countersunk rivets in the socket and roundhead rivets in the base of the handle and the handle itself. It had no loose components or bending on test. The socket comes a third of the way up the handle and the tines are well-spaced and strong.
