Ok, this is a dumb question, but it's been bugging me for awhile. Usually when people eat with forks and knives, they put their knife in their dominant hand, cut, set the knife down, pick up their fork with their dominant hand, and then eat. But I've found that when I eat, I pick up my knife with whichever hand (if I'm already holding my fork in my right, it'll be my left, but if I'm holding nothing in my right I'll cut with my right) and then use my fork in the opposite hand to eat what I've cut. I can cut/transfer food to my mouth just as easily with either hand. But when I watch other people eat, they always eat only with one hand, whichever their dominant is. Maybe this is just a table manners fail on my part (wouldn't surprise me) but I've asked a few right hand dominant people about it and they all said they can't eat well with their left hands at all. So I'm wondering: can you use both hands equally well to eat, or do you use only one? If the latter, is it just how you were taught or because you can only eat well with your dominant hand? I'm ambidextrous, and I'm trying to figure out whether I'm actually just being a pig-headed barbarian eating with both hands or whether people don't usually do that because they can't actually eat that way very easily.
