  1. So cool! Off to find a cheap fork now so I can make one. Thank you kindly!

    1. Thanks! I think I'll head out to goodwill for a cheapo fork or two. What a cool idea!

        While you're at the Goodwill you might also keep your eye out for a cherry pitter---that's where I found mine for 95 cents.

      2. I feel like the fork is giving me the middle finger. :)

        Nice video. Thanks.

            I must have a twisted mind. The moment I saw the "new" fork... I was like.... Hmm... middle finger...

        2. that looks like it does a BETTER job than the standard pitter!

          1. Fantastic! Thanks so much for posting that.

            1. Just remember to heat the fork a bit on the stove (and use a towel) before you shape it. My first one snapped right away when i was trying to bend it(whoops) Haha. Glad this is useful!

              ALSO. What i found useful is to try to pull the pit from the top side and perpendicular to the longer side.

              1. I use a large bobby pin and it does about the same thing.
