Can anyone i.d. the use of this Dutch silver fork?

Hi all. I have a Dutch .833 silver fork with two pointed tines and one flat tine, with the mark AK above *47 for the widow Kuijlenburg-Borst of Shoonhoven, 1882-1893. I’ve seen this form with a spoon referred to as a “ginger set.” Does anyone know if this is correct and what the particular use of the set is for? Appreciate your thoughts.



A cold meat serving fork?

Replacements has a similar American silver plate fork.

Similar conceptually.

The Christofle pattern “book” also shows a similar serving fork.
