    These nesting utensils were a soldier’s favorite.  The knife, fork and spoon conveniently nest together and for a sturdy compact trio. It was one of the more popular knife, fork and spoon combinations of the period. Richard’s patent of July 23, 1861. The other piece has a spoon on one end and a fork on the opposite with a crimped section between the two. When not in use the fork slides into the crimped knife handle while the knife slides into the crimped area on the spoon and fork section.
