  The storage tray proposed in Patent Document 1 can store the types of spoons and forks according to the number of plates provided, classified by type and size. A flat area corresponding to the number of small plates is required, and there is still room for improvement in terms of effective use of storage space. In particular, since the accommodation space (area) in a kitchen or the like is limited, there is still room for improvement in order to efficiently and neatly arrange it.

  In addition, the chopstick stand proposed in the above-mentioned Patent Document 2 has the effect that it can be taken out quickly and mold can be prevented because it can be stored one by one. There is still room for improvement in terms of the target and good appearance.

  Here, spoons, forks, and other long-sized eating utensils that are widely used in ordinary homes and restaurants, etc., are often used in the same shape and design for the same type, Therefore, if this can be organized regularly and simply, it can be stored in a space-saving manner with good appearance, and operations at the time of storage and removal can be simplified.

  Therefore, the present invention focuses on the actual situation in such a general home, and provides a holder for a eating tool that looks good and can be easily stored and taken out while effectively using the storage space. This is the issue.

  In order to solve the above problems, in the present invention, a holding tool for a eating utensil that holds a spoon, a fork or other elongated eating utensil, the holding utensil for the eating utensil supports the side of the eating utensil to be held A holding part for a dining tool, the side wall part comprising at least a pair of support pieces standing upright in the vertical direction, the pair of support pieces being provided so that the distance between them can be arbitrarily adjusted. Provide ingredients.

  In the holding tool for eating tools of the present invention, since the side wall portion comprising a pair of support pieces for supporting the side surface of the eating tool is provided, when spoons, forks or other long-sized eating tools are stacked horizontally (that is, , Even when stacked in the length direction), the eating utensils can be prevented from collapsing and can be stacked in order. When stacking eating utensils in this way, the eating utensils used in ordinary households and restaurants are generally unified with the same design, so it will look better if stored in a stacked state, By stacking, it is possible to easily extract the required quantity in order from the top. In addition, when taking out each eating utensil, since it can be taken out in order from the top, the other eating utensils are not polluted, and the intended eating utensil (spoon, fork etc. distinction, size distinction, etc.) Can be taken out as much as necessary, so that the eating tool holder is excellent in ease of use and can be sanitarily stored.

  Furthermore, the holding tool for eating utensils according to the present invention includes a side wall portion for supporting the side surface of the eating utensil to be held, and the pair of support pieces constituting the side wall portion can be arbitrarily spaced from each other.

  Furthermore, the eating tool holder 20 shown in this embodiment is configured so that the distal end wall 23 that supports the distal end side in the length direction of the elongated eating tool 10 and the base part of the eating tool 10 are supported. The distal end wall 23 and a base wall 24 provided to face each other are provided. By providing such a distal end wall 23 and a base wall 24, the stacked eating utensils 10 such as spoons and forks will not shift in the length direction, so that these eating utensils 10 can be held more clearly and reliably. It becomes possible. Further, at least one of the distal end wall 23 and the base wall 24 is provided with a wall portion that prevents the distal end portion or the base portion of the elongate eating tool 10 from moving in the lateral direction (a side surface near the distal end or the rear end of the eating device). A supporting wall part) can also be provided. If such a wall part is formed, the said side wall part 21 may be sufficient with respect to the whole holder 20 for eating tools.

  Each wall portion of the side wall portion 21, the tip end wall 23, and the base wall 24 is installed in a long lower frame portion 25 that is formed to be extendable in the length direction. 25 and each wall part can be formed using the same material, or can be formed using different materials. In particular, the lower surface of the lower frame portion 25 functions as a lower surface when the eating tool holder 20 according to the present embodiment is installed in a flat shape, and thus is flat and desirably formed widely. It is desirable to provide the part which has. In addition, any design can be applied to the lower frame portion 25.

Form. This is because, although the eating utensils 10 are provided in various designs and the widths thereof are also varied, it can be freely adjusted according to the width of the eating utensil 10 to be held. Therefore, the pair of support pieces 22 has a structure in which the interval can be freely adjusted, and it is desirable that the pair of support pieces 22 be formed so as to hold the interval after being set to a predetermined interval.

  For example, as shown in FIG. 4, such a support piece 22 has an installation structure in which the support pieces 22 projecting on both sides of the frame portion are freely movable with respect to the frame portion that is formed to be stretchable in the length direction. It can be materialized by installing in. At that time, a combination structure such as unevenness that fits or joins complementarily can be formed at the installation location of the support piece 22 in the frame portion and the attachment location of the support piece 22 to the frame portion, or A joining member such as a hook-and-loop fastener or an adhesive tape can also be installed at the location.

  FIG. 4A shows an example of a telescopic structure in the lower frame portion 25. In this figure, the rear end side is placed in a groove formed in the front end side frame 25a constituting the front end side of the lower frame portion 25. The rear end side frame 25b that constitutes the frame is inserted, and the relative movement between the two is prevented by the engagement of the irregularities formed on the opposing surfaces of both frames. 4 (B) and 4 (C) show the engagement state of the support piece 22 with respect to the lower frame portion 25. An uneven portion is formed on the opposing surface of the both, and the engagement between them results in a relative relationship between the two. Can be prevented. The support piece 22 is fixed to the lower frame portion 25 by forming a groove having a width that allows the support piece 22 to be fitted on the bottom surface of the lower frame portion 25, and holding the support piece 22 by fitting the groove. Is possible.

  For example, as shown in FIG. 5, the eating tool holder 20 according to the present embodiment can be arranged and used in parallel so that the length direction is aligned. It can be stored together by type, design or size. Further, when the plurality of eating tool holders 20 are arranged in parallel, it is desirable that they are formed with a structure that can be connected to each other (for example, a structure that complementarily fits or joins).
