No question about it, you should use a fork (a normal one, not a garden fork). If eating cheesecake whilst out and about, this also makes you look a bit posh.

Defo fork, but no knife. You have to cut it with the side of the fork. Them's the rules.
I like the cut of your jib here, Freddie. I'd point and laugh if i saw anyone using a knife on a cheesecake unless they were plating up. In fact, i often challenge myself to get through the main without using a knife, just to prove that i can. You can look a bit of a tw*t tackling a steak this way, mind.

Get you, Miss La-di-da ...
Ahem. Well, I was also going to suggest that a gentleman should always carry a dessert fork - neatly wrapped in a napkin - about his person. Likewise, a lady should keep the same in her handbag. One never knows when one might chance upon a quality cheesecake ...

It's this kind of attitude towards cheesecake which restores my faith in humankind [y]

We're not talking about the cheap imitations, Al. We're talking quality cheesecake. Like this ... (Note the correct forkage)

Looking for Guy Fawkes to finish the job
This comment proves you are no aficionado Al - never refer to yourself as one again. I'm not even going to comment on your spelling of desserts as that would be unkind.
Morning Frodo. The average cheesecake tastes of nothing and I have sophisticated tastes. The average cheesecake does not deserve to be described as a dessert and after a day working in Britain's Ocean City spelling can be a challenge.

Dare I suggest that if said cheesecake was served with a compote of some description one might have to resort to the fork/spoon combo (not a spork, of course)?
