Let’s just address the tweepodok in the room.
A few of us last Xmas got the now “baby version” CRKT Eat N’ Tool that I reviewed last year. Well the fine folks at Columbia River have now “extended” their line and created the extra large 9110C Eat N’ Tool which features an actual handle to the spork and a more functional hex wrench. No it’s not titanium but it’s a great price. The longer handle means you can reach the bottom of that can of beans (it has a can opener now!) without getting your hands dirty. The original model is still a favorite of mine but I’m asking Santa for this new one.
Apple’s recent success with the golden Iphone has brought attenti0n to people’s love of all things that glitter. But gold cutlery? Sure, why not. “Rocco” by Herdmar is actually 18/10 stainless steel with a matte gold finish. It’s dishwasher safe and won’t need polishing. But you will polish it, you know you’ll polish it. It’s gold! It has to be at it’s shiniest!
Carrying your own cutlery surprises people. Especially at the office where it gets a strange look and then a light goes on over their head. It is actually a good idea is what they realize. There is the benefit of hygiene but even more important is that you have the exact implement you need for what you need it for. These look pretty good and the case with lid would be pretty handy.
