Just going to point out that coal forks can have many more tines than just 6. I have one with 12, you can see a 10 tined fork here. http://i184.photobucket.com/albums/x105/StepheninSOKY/coal008.jpg Matt — Preceding unsigned comment added by 204.9.9.134 (talk) 02:57, 7 June 2012 (UTC)

Why is the pitchfork associated w/ the devil?

Because people often confuse a trident as being a pitchfork. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 71.214.216.175 (talk) 23:03, 24 July 2012 (UTC)

I believe that it is actually supposed to be a trident, but I am too lazy to change this. BirdValiant 00:02, 5 June 2007 (UTC)

I have deleted the section containing Sparky the Arizona State mascot. Sparky is clearly carrying a trident. Although both pitchforks and tridents have a similar structure, they are completely different. A pitchfork is designed to pitch hay. A trident is a weapon used as a spear. The tool that Sparky is holding has a barb on the center tine. A barb is used on a spear to restrict removal once an object is speared.

So, because this picture and the accompanying text provides a poor representation of a pitchfork, I have deleted it.

Also of note, there is a comic book character named Blue Devil who carries a similar device. In the comic it is described as his trident.

If an entry about devils frequently being depicted with pitchforks is deemed appropriate, then I suggest that you find a picture of a pitchfork (without barbs).
