Reviewing Adapted Knives

When I eat out I order soft food that can be cut with a fork, like fish and pasta.  At home I have rocker knives that let me press down on the food to hold it still while a rocking motion cuts the food.  The photo shows two rocker knives.  The long knife in the photo on the right is the most commonly used one.  However, the photo below shows that this rocker knife does not fit in my purse.
I have to use an across-the-body purse because straps keep sliding off my shoulder.  Straps that slide were OK when I was able-bodied and had a free hand to keep pushing the strap back up.  Fortunately I found a small purse called the Terrace Shoulder Pouch at ebag.com.  Putting the purse in front of my body keeps it out of the way when I reach forward with my cane.  I have larger over-the-shoulder bags, but they stick out so far I look like a pregnant walrus.  
Another alternative is the smaller knife in the photo above.  I think it looks like a weapon for an assassin so I use it to cut vegetables at home.  I am the least fashion conscious person I know,
but even I am vain enough to want to look like everyone else in a restaurant.

    Except it doesn't look like a rocker knife, never mind I'm looking at it wrong.

  3. I never realized when able-bodied how challenging it is to keep a purse strap on my shoulder. I can use only one purse in my collection now, because it slings across my body at the right height for me to reach into it, and it has a snap closure. I don't do zippers!
