Knight Forks 

Here's a video I found on YouTube that does a great job of illustrating knight forks. Most of it is pretty elementary, but at the end, it shows a great example of how to not just find forks, but force your opponent into a position where you can for them.



At least when playing against less experienced opponents who aren't accustomed to noticing when they're in danger of a fork, knights are great pieces to fork with because their moves and the consequences of them are harder to notice "by accident". Training yourself to look for such opportunities can pay off big time.
