Joseph Joseph 2-Piece Jar Spoon and Fork Set with Scoop and Pick

Joseph Joseph 2-Piece Jar Spoon and Fork SetWhere did these “Joseph Joseph” guys come from? Have I been hiding under a rock? Normally we wouldn’t review products from the same company twice in a row. But this spoon and fork set is too cool to ignore. These guys call themselves “masters of form and function” and I can’t disagree.

Look at this thing, it’s a clever spoon scoop for olives, pearl onions and the like. And it has a cute little tiny strainer built in. But wait there’s more! It’s got a pickle fork that snaps into the handle. What’s not to like? And it’s dishwasher safe. And it’s a great price.

Ka-Bar Tactical Spork Tool – Everyday Carry Cutlery

ka-bar-tactical-spork-toolWe 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.

The Oysters are coming! Oyster Knife By HiCoup

Oyster Knife by HiCoupMonths with a letter R in them means seafood. And next month is September and it’s time for oysters.

Normally we don’t look at knives on this site as many other’s consider the definition of cutlery to include only knives. But we look at all knives, forks and spoons. And boy is this a great looking knife for the kitchen or BBQ. This oyster knife has a hit list by HiCoup:

  1. A classic oyster knife designed by HiCoup, a North American based company with a history of designing fine kitchen tools
  2. The durable and solid pakka wood handle ensures a firm, comfortable grip.
  3. The “full tang” mirror finish 420 stainless steel blade gives the knife the strength it needs to open oysters and makes it incredibly durable for years of use.
  4. The large guard will protect your hands from hitting sharp pieces from the oyster shell.
  5. Versatile enough for any shape and species of oyster.

And a warning! – Although an oyster knife is relatively blunt compared to an ordinary kitchen knife, the fact that you often need considerable force to open an oyster would still mean that if your knife slips it could significantly damage your hands. So please exercise safety when opening oysters.

Nantucket Seafood Seafood Doohickey

Nantucket Seafood Seafood DoohickeyI’ll admit this right up front, the word “Doohickey” is what attracted me to this item. I just love the sound of it and I love the fact that this is indeed what these long handled forks are called. The true definition of the word Doohickey is “an object or device whose name you do not know or have forgotten”.

These two tined forks are the perfect cutlery for getting seafood out things like lobster and crab. They are about 9 inches long and also great for getting olives, pickles and the like out of jars. They might be sold as a single use flatware item but these Nantucket Seafood Seafood Doohickey forks are great for more than just seafood.

And just think of that moment when you ask someone to grabs the Doohickies out of the cutlery drawer!
