"Fork and knife" sounds close to "❤❤❤❤ a knife" when speaking a but too fast. (Worse especially with an Aussie accent)

'May i have' is more natural to me then is 'can i get'....which sounds like someone who lacks table manners.

Oh, I'm sorry for my rudeness. It's polite expression as 'May i have' asks your permission, right?

Yes. It was an older generation, I supose.. That included a portion of english class (or at home table manners) for speaking manners. 'Can I get' usually earned one a slap for being rude. Same with expressions of yes.., such as, 'yeah, okay, sure' etc. Words to remember were, 'May I', 'Please', and 'Thank you'. .. I got cuffed a fair bit. (And yet, i still find myself a lazy typer today. Go figure)
