Mail Bag

Hi there - I was researching sardines (what else?) and came across
your very interesting and informational website. What a collection of
tins!

Great photos of the meals too. I noticed the serving device- a
spatula? with the fish cutout and it intrigues me. Is that a recent
purchase? I'd love to add one to my collection - would appreciate it
if you could provide any information on where I might be abe to
locate. I'm aware of sardine forks but nothing with a flat surface.

Thanks in advance-

Vee

We've talked about Sardine Forks and other Appliances and then there is this.

Key 1

I don't know where I got this or if it is Sardine Specific but it is for opening tins. When it comes apart into two pieces the handle piece has a groove to grip a tin top and the triangle at the other end is for turning leverage. The triangle is not a bottle opener. Also cast into the triangle is "Made in England"

Key 2

I think Mama Sherry foraged this out of a thrift store.
Thanks Vee.

Wow, a fellow tinned fish lover. My tastes extend to tinned anchovies and my favourite - mackeral. Lovely stuff. I posted on my blog about it: http://ambradambra.wordpress.com/2013/01/23/lurking-in-the-cupboard-4-metal-food-tins/
