I have modelled a fork and applied a metallic texture to it. However, the lighting seems to be inconsistent: enter image description here

The entire fork is one object which I have joined together after modelling smaller pieces first: enter image description here

And here's how the geometry is done: enter image description here

What are some common causes for this problem occuring?

Here is the blender file:

  • $\begingroup$ Blender file has been added. I've changed it a little bit since and have gotten slight improvements, though there are still a few distortions. Thanks for taking a look. I look forward to hearing from you. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ Another example, (very similar to mooboots, actually,) of modelling a fork :blender.stackexchange.com/a/223060/35559 $\endgroup$

Your topology is not very good, and it's always harder to fix a topology that is a bit dense. I would personally redo it from scratch with a topology that is as simple as possible, like that:

Here is what it gives with a stack of modifier, Curve, Solidify, Bevel and Subdivision Surface:
