    Good evening,
    I do not know the English word, as I'm not sure there is an English word, but I am trying to find what the word is for the small cutlery rack which is used to put knives and forks on between courses, so that they can be used again?

    Does anyone have any ideas? Many thanks!

    In AE we would call that a knife-rest - un repose-couteau

    (cutlery in AE refers only to large knives in the kitchen--la coûtellerie. What is on the table is called silverware)

    Pour ma part, j'emploie le terme 'un porte-couteau'.

    Tu as au moins un demi-million de personnes qui sont d'accord avec toi, xtra!

    (Je suis minoritaire, moi...)

    Amusant ce Google-fight...

    Mais dans la bagarre entre 'wildan' et 'xtrasystole', c'est toi qui gagne très largement !!!
