Because look, the little plastic forks are just as pointy as the metal forks we use, and actually since most metal forks have square-tipped tines and most plastic forks have circular-tipped tines the metal forks are actually LESS pokey unless they are used to stab with a force no toddler can muster. (Like, if fending off a burglar I’d go with a metal fork over a plastic fork because the plastic fork would just break with 200 lbs of stabbiness behind it.)
So, no more plastic forks.

You could give her a toddler fork. Just sayin'.
Ummm… my toddler always manages to bite off the tines of a plastic fork, causing me a minor panic attack. So no plastic forks for me either.
I very much hope that you tested your stabby-fork-hypothesis by attempting to stab various things with it. Mushrooms. Melons. Meat. Other food words that start with M.
It's an M kind of morning I guess. Hey! Another M-word!
We didn't bother with forks until they were over 4. Not so stabby with spoons.
I agree. I'm not a fan of plastic forks either. My kid uses a regular fork and a butterfly knife with her chicken nuggets.
