We love Everyday Carry Cutlery (ECC) here at The Cutlery Review. ECC isn’t a brand, it’s an attitude. It is the concept of always being prepared for a culinary challenge where ever you are.
And the Ka-Bar Tactical Spork Tool fills the need in all sorts of ways. What makes this spork tool by Ka-Bar different is that it is tactical. Usually that means applying some zombie killer green spray paint or a rainbow finish to a blade. But this fork, spoon combo has a rugged handle and an interesting knife inside.
This killer cutlery is 6.875 inches with a 2.5 inch serrated knife hidden in the handle. Perfect for cutting up steak or slicing open ration bags. It’s dishwasher safe as it is made from Grilamid FWA, a high-strength, technical polymer. It’s food safe and UV resistant.
The perfect stocking stuffer for that adventurous person in your family.
Just don’t take it to the airport, I know it’s just plastic, by the FAA will take it away.
Another interesting Kickstarter from the company Spün who has created smart cutlery used with a phone app which will measure the weight and type of food you are eating to provide instantaneous information for healthy eating. The data is stored on your phone where you can match your calorie and nutritional intake against your daily goals.
You must first take a photo of the food you are about to eat via the phone app and from there the technology analyzes what you are eating, and how much, with each mouthful you take. The cutlery looks like an everyday spoon or fork, there are interchangeable stainless steel heads, and it will warn you when you have met your target for a meal. It also vibrates when it senses you are eating too quickly.
While eating you can watch the Spün app to see real-time stats on your current meal and for the day, including how many calories you’ve had, how fast you are eating, and more. Over time, Spün will give you food recommendations.
