CLAIMS
1. An integral eating utensil having a front end and a rear end and comprising: at the forward portion including said front end, an implement for engagement with food; an elongate, rearwardly directed, widened main handle part extending back from said forward implement portion with a curvature directed up and then back and down to join to said rear end; a further, curved auxiliary handle part under said main handle part, extending forward from said rear end in a gentle curve, first passing slightly down, then forward toward said implement and slightly upward to a terminal end, said terminal end being spaced-apart from said main handle part and located approximately midway between the front end and the rear end of the utensil; the joinder portion between the implement and said rearwardly directed main handle part having a reflex S-shape curve from said handle curvature into said implement; the elongate main handle part from the reflex curve joinder portion to where it joins said rear end having its elongate dimension approximately the distance from the tip of a person's index finger to the heel of the person's palm adjacent the adjoining wrist.
2. An eating utensil as defined in claim 1, wherein said further curved auxiliary handle part has a dimensin from said rear end to its said terminal end which is approximately but not greater than one-half of said elongate dimension of said main handle part.
3. An eating utensil as defined in claim 1 said auxiliary handle part which is forward of said rear end being spaced-away from said main part a maximum distance no greater than approximately one-third of said elongate dimension of said main handle.
4. An eating utensil as defined in claim 1, wherein said S-shaped reflex joinder portion being flat in a direction trensverse to the length of said main handle part.
5. An eating utensil as defined in claim 1 wherein an elongate upper portion of said main handle part has a grooved contour enabling a persons' index finger to rest therein.
6. An eating utensil as defined in claim 1 wherein said main handle part is tapered from its uppermost portion to its rearwardmost portion.
7. An eating utensil as defined in claim 1 wherein said implement for engegement with food is a multi-tined fork member.

1. An integral eating utensil having a front end and a rear end and comprising: at the forward portion including said front end, an implement portion for engagement with food; an elongate, rearwardly directed, widened main handle part extending back from said forward implement portion with a curvature directed up and then back and down to join to said rear end; a further, curved auxiliary handle part under said main handle part, extending forward from said rear end in a gentle curve, first passing slightly down, then forward toward said implement portion and slightly upward to a terminal end, said terminal end being spaced-apart from said main handle part and located approximately midway between the front end and the rear end of the utensil; the joinder portion between the implement portion and said rearwarly directed main handle part having a reflex S-shape curve from said handle curvature into said implement portion.
2. An eating utensil as defined in claim 1, wherein said curved auxiliary handle part has a length from its said terminal end to said rear end of the utensil which is approximately equal to one-half of the length dimension of said main handle part measured from said joinder portion to the utensil rear end.
3. An eating utensil as defined in claim 1, the forward portion of said auxiliary handle part which is forward of said rear end being spaced-apart below said main handle part a maximum distance no greater than approximately one-third of the length of said main handle part measured from said joinder portion to the utensil rear end.
4. An eating utensil as defined in claim , wherein said S-shaped reflex joinder portion bein flat in a

5. An eating utensil as defined in claim 1, wherein an elongate upper portion of said main handle part has a grooved contour enabling a persons' index finger to rest therein.
6. An eating utensil as defined in claim 1, wherein said main handle part is tapered from its uppermost portion to its rearwardmost portion.
7. An eating utensil as defined in claim 1, wherein said implement for engagement with food is a multi-tined fork member.
8. An eating utensil as defined in claim 1, wherein said rear end includes a rear utensil portion with a downward curvature from a joinder with said main handle part; and the curved distance along said elongate main handle part from the reflex curve joinder portion to where the main handle joins said rear utensil portion has a length approximately the distance from the tip of the index finger of a users hand to the heel of the palm of that hand adjacent the adjoining wrist.
