My main cutlery is organized Knife|Fork|Spoon, but there's lots of other little sections and items mixed in/around/on/under the actual cutlery separator. I guess the non-table-setting ordering comes from when my dad and I lived together before he was married. We hardly ever had a "Sit down around a table" dinner because we were both geeks, and even when we did we didn't care about setting the table.

My stepmom, however, does, and we eat together just about every night. She sets the table, and I guess she doesn't mind the ordering.

Out knife drawer is a horrible clumping off all things sharp and pointy in the kitchen which should probably be organized to some degree. I hate having to reach in there to get something at the bottom, for fear of losing my hand.

My cutlery tray at home is one of the shape-y ones, so i don't have a lot of choice.
However, the massive cutlery bus pan at my work is knife-fork-spoon-junk. It used to be spoon-fork-knife, but the knives and spoons staged some sort of uprising last week or something like that.

However, we have about three times more forks than any other kind of cutlery, so that's prolly why they're not getting moved.

I have one big drawer with 5 compartments aligned vertically, with two smaller horizontal compartments. Left to right they are:
Half of my cooking knives, half of my spatulas and spoons, half of my other cooking utensils.
Spoons.
Forks.
Knives.
The other half of my cooking knives, spatualas, spoons and other random cooking utensils.
With the smaller ones at the top, the nearer one has teaspoons and fruit spoons in it, the furthest back one has rarely-used kitchen equipment (measuring cups, device for making spirally vegetables, spaghetti measurer, that kind of stuff).

I would say that the knives should go to the right of the forks as I'm right-handed, so right hand goes for the knife while left hand goes for the fork. I suppose spoons could go either side and might make slightly more sense to be on the right if they include soup spoons, but I like them on the left.
Please note that despite the lovely avatar Sungura gave me, I am not a medical doctor.

Possibly my proudest moment on the fora.

I can't remember what it is at home, but at uni it's spoon fork knife because the only person in the house who cares about these things is the one who organised it.

The work of foul agents of despair, not doubt. Take the power back! Spoon-fork-knife FTW!

What, no otter?

Mine is, left-to-right: big spoons, smaller spoons, knives, forks, chopsticks. 'Cause I'm Asian like that.
...It made more sense in my head.
