Submitted by anonymous  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh

A sharp, treif food will only make the counter treif if pressure is applied, for example if it is cut or crushed on the counter, but not just by touching. However, a hot treif food will make the counter non-Kosher even with contact alone. Cutlery is the same, if you cut or stab a sharp treif food the fork or knife will no longer be Kosher until kashered. Also, if the utensil comes in contact with hot non-Kosher food it will no longer be permitted to use.
