# 6 EARLY SILVERWARE DISTINCTIVES
There was a significant set back in Silverware development when an influential Tribal Leader named Egad Agor (a direct descendant Artie and Alice Agor) decided to take his Flint Knife and split a small limb trying to make three pronged forks. After using a natural split limb to roast veggies, fruit, marshmallows, lizards, frogs and various meats; he decided to increase the prongs for more and better roasting. The Flint Knife slipped and cut off his thumb and this made holding a stick, knife and Silverware Stone a little more challenging. Without a thumb he trained himself to grasp the stick with only his four fingers wadded up around the stick.
After his eleven children, and wife and extended tribal members watched this over a period of years they all decided this was the proper way to use Silverware before Silverware was silver. All the others in the Cave Community soon followed the example. It was a dozen generations before they determined that it would be better to use the thumb as well while gripping various things. Whole new advances in skills soon followed such as holding on to vines, weaving better rugs and placemats for cave floors and table rocks, gripping spears, tying flies, holding fishing poles, holding bones while gnawing, skinning and butchering Mastodons, putting on make-up, using paint brushes and Silverware Rocks much easier.
Life was quickly advancing and moving forward all because of the innovation and development of Silverware and it’s many distinctions and uses.
No, really, this is what happened.
