Looking for wooden fork

I have a sturdy, 3-pronged maple fork that is perfect for smashing potatoes. My daughter covets it, so I'm trying to find her one before she makes off with mine. I'm not having any luck at all. Suggestions of where to look?
I have one of those also. It is, bar none, my FAVORITE kitchen utensil. I use it for sauteeing, stirring, mixing up pizza/bread dough, etc, etc, etc. I have had mine for at least 25 years now and for at least the past 5, have been on the look-out for a replacement (or one for my daughter, 'cause if she ever took off with mine I would have to consider cutting her out of my will). Mine originally came in a set of wooden spoons, spatula, and of course the fork. Forks don't seem to be sold anywhere on their own. And they don't seem to be included in the "sets" anymore.
Thanks for the tip about Ikea. Per their web-site, they do have them included in a set with 2 other things, but they are a "store only" item. From the picture on the web-site, I'm not liking the shape as much as I do mine, but if I ever find myself near a store, I'm definately going to look.
I am shortly going to be overrun by wooden forks! I've sent my son (Portland, OR) off to Ikea, and have ordered all the rest. One of them is bound to work. iyc, yours looks closes to mine. I couldn't resist the beauty of the Lithuanian fork, and decided I might as well take give the other one a try, as well. Thanks, everyone -- great sleuthing!
