 Post subject: Decent forks in the UK?

Does anyone know where I can get some decent forks in the UK for doing bending routines (Ala Morgan Strebler's Liquid Metal). They need to be cheap (two are destroyed per time) and soft and made of steel. I can see that Asda has some forks, about 4 for 93p but my local store does not carry them and they wont deliver to my area for online ordering. I am hopeful about these forks though because Asda is part of the Wal-Mart group, and that's where the suggested forks (Dominion Dinner Forks) can be bought. (ok its a stretch). Has anyone in the UK used Asda forks for metal bending routines? There must be some metal benders here in the UK?

I am also having the same problem, but if you read the reviews of LM one guy says he uses Tesco value forks. I havent tried these yet. But its worth a try.

Thanks aidanrr.

I'm not sure how I missed reading that but I will try those if I can get some. (You cant buy them online it seems). But while searching for "Tesco Value Forks" I found a forum where someone has used the Asda forks successfully so I will see if I can get some of those too. Let me know how you get on.

I can DEFINITELY recommend ASDA value forks (4 for 93p). You won't go wrong with these, I use them all the time for Liquid Metal-esque routines. You can pull off the corkscrew twist in seconds (once you have the knack) and the tines are similarly pliable.

Well I went a bought a load of "Tesco Value Forks" and they dont work for me. I cannot do the corkscrew with them, as they are so brittle they break. Maybe I have a crummy batch of them, I dont know. I am desperate to find an Asda store that carries their forks but I cannot. I hear that some stores also carry Bicycle cards too. (Cool).

This topic has been brought up in the past and we always sorted it by saying ASDA.

Thanks to everyone for their help and support.

I have at last found an Asda near enough and big enough to carry the forks. I bought only a couple of packs (after the Tesco fiasco), tried them out and they rule! Its so easy to do Morgan's routine with these. So I've since been back and bought every pack they had on the shelves. (dont worry I'm sure they will get more). Anyway thanks to everyone who helped steer me in the right direction. I really appreciate it.
