You use me as a weapon,
Though I'm more lethal with my friend.
Another friend is fatter,
Beware what's at my end.

I hold your victims down,
Or bring them up to you.
You reward me with a clean,
And when your work is done,
you lie me down and my friends too.

Then when you no longer need me,
You shower or bathe me before,
You lock me and my friends up,
And I sleep till I'm needed once more.

What am I?
Who are my friends?

A fork is used to pierce

Though I'm more lethal with my friend

Knife and fork

Another friend is fatter

Fork tines

I hold your victims down

Or bring them up to you

Raise the fork to your mouth

And when your work is done

You have finished eating

you lie me down and my friends too

Place the fork down, aside the knife and spoon

Then when you no longer need me

After a meal

You lock me and my friends up

In the drawer

And I sleep till I'm needed once more

I think you are

a fork

You use me as a weapon
Though I'm more lethal with my friend
Another friend is fatter
Beware what's at my end

You stab food with a fork. Though more lethal when accompanied by a knife.
Your other friend is a spoon (fatter).
We should beware your tines.

I hold your victims down
Or bring them up to you

holding food down to cut, or lifting bites to your mouth.

You reward me with a clean

cleaning the food off by eating it

And when your work is done
you lie me down and my friends too

you set down your silverware when done eating.

Then when you no longer need me
You shower or bathe me before

Washing dishes, either in a sink (bathing) or dishwasher (showering)

You lock me and my friends up
And I sleep till I'm needed once more

put them away in the silverware drawer.

What am I?

A fork

Who are my friends?

Knife and spoon
