Two tools the escargot fan needs to help with the gastropods: the snail fork and the snail tong.
The two-pronged stainless steel 6" snail/cocktail/seafood fork (shown on the right) is perfect for either picking a snail out of its shell or for spearing the snail from a snail plate.
The 6-1/2" stainless steel snail tong (shown on the left) allows the escargot fan to clamp onto the snail's shell. Being securely held, the snail can then be retrieved easily using the snail fork. Price shown is for the snail fork.
