40 Foot Long Fork

The Creede Fork is the largest fork in the U.S. Made of aluminum, forty feet long, weighing over 600 pounds. The fork was designed and created by Chev and Ted Yund, and was installed as an art display and birthday gift for Denise Dutwiler, the owner of a bar and grill in town.

[Keith Siddel, 08/17/2012]

The fork was specifically built to be bigger than the giant fork in Springfield, MO, which until then was the largest in America.
