- It’s bad luck to see knives with the blades crossed either in the drawer or on the worktop.
- If a friend gives you a knife, you should give him a coin, (now you are buying the knife instead of receiving it as a gift) or your friendship will soon be broken.
To drop a fork, means male company
To drop a spoon means female company
To drop a knife means a stranger will knock
I have also heard it this way;
To drop a fork means female company
To drop a knife means male company
To drop a spoon means a child will visit.
To accidentally put two spoons at a table setting means a female will marry soon.
To accidentally put two forks at a table setting (meaning to dinner forks, not a dinner fork and a salad fork), means a male will marry soon.
