A typical "toy" tuning fork as shown on the left is made from bent wire that is welded to a simple stem. 

It costs less than a dollar to make & comes with no technical quarantees for accuracy & is only rough tuned.

All John Walker forks are triple tuned & are guaranteed accurate to  +/- 0.05Hz (better than 0.01% for a 512Hz fork).
