Unofficial Etiquette Pollage

After hearing a discussion on the radio about table manners and cultural/national ways of eating, I got curious and decided to ask you guys about it. According to the program, there is more than one way people in Western countries use a knife while eating. I did not know this, which shows just how much I don't know about culture.

So anyway, a poll:

Poll #1409363 Table manners poll

After cutting a piece of meat/other food requiring a knife in order to eat, do you

lay down the knife and switch fork to opposite hand before eating cut piece
eat cut piece with fork in same hand without laying down knife
do something else which I'll describe in a comment
I do not eat food requiring a knife.

In what country did you first learn basic table manners?
