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
15(34.9%)
eat cut piece with fork in same hand without laying down knife
26(60.5%)
do something else which I'll describe in a comment
2(4.7%)
I do not eat food requiring a knife.
0(0.0%)

In what country did you first learn basic table manners?
