A fire fork is used to hold things onto a stick, you can buy them but like most bushcrafters I prefer to make my own.
They are not as pretty as the ones you can buy but they do exactly the same job and are about 99% cheaper
What you need:
18" of relatively stiff steel wire (you can snarf this from a broken fence.)
Strong Pliers (Square or round nose, it doesn't matter)
Ok, get the wire and snip it to about 18", this is plenty long enough for this project.
Find out where the middle is and wrap it around a cylinder, this can be a stick, a board marker or in my case, a lipstick tube
Only wrap once, like shown above and then grab your pliers, I personally work better with round nose ones but what ever you have is good.
Try to make the bend as close to the loop as possible:
Do this on both sides:
Now about 2" down you will need to make another bend in the wire.
This is towards the middle like this:
Do it on both sides.
Now grab the wire about half way again and bend it into a 'U
Pull the two apart a bit and bend the ends in to make the prongs:
To attach your fork to a stick all you need to do is thread the stick through the standing
loop and then squeeze the two U shaped bits so they overlap and pop the end through.
NB: You need to use pretty stiff wire to get the tension to hold the fork to the stick.
