Cutlery design through history

Time traveller Eon Straddler and his hapless assistant take four short trips in time to pre-history through Ancient Greece, Regency England and back to the present day. Wherever they stop, they consider the evolution of cutlery from a tool to 'kill and cut' to a set of instruments that spoke volumes about the prestige of the owner. With a light-hearted and humorous approach, we learn about the historical influences on both the look and function of the objects.
