We here at The Cutlery Review have been talking about what we have named “Everyday Carry Cutlery” (ECC). The idea being that you have a handy portable and reusable set of flatware on your person in your backpack or purse. And if you check out the link you will see there are a lot of options out there. It’s handy, hygienic and good for the environment. Just say no to flimsy plastic forks.
So it’s interesting to see our friends over at TreeHugger.com write the article: Why “Bring Your Own Cutlery” needs to become a new trend. To quote them:
“Most obviously, disposable plastic cutlery should be made illegal, which is precisely what France has done.”
That’s a pretty strong statement that we can get behind. We are seeing plastic grocery bags being banned all over the world, why not plastic cutlery?

We love Everyday Carry Cutlery (ECC) around here. And we also are enamored with anything so nice they name it twice. This ECC product is perfect for the purse, backpack, lunchbox or picnic basket.
The company “Joseph Joseph” brings us their GoEat Compact Stainless-Steel Cutlery Set. This 18/10 stainless steel dishwasher safe set includes a full size knife, spoon, and fork. And the cutest little compact silicone case.

Not sure what our fascination is with Everyday Cutlery Carry but it seems to be supported by what the market has for sale for us. I guess being prepared for any culinary adventure is a good thing.
Right up front let’s state that these are inexpensive and made of plastic. So that should set your expectations, they perform as they were designed and priced.
So one is a knife and one is a fork. Together they are Wonder Twins! OK, so together they are a pair of chopsticks.
Cute, effective and cheap. And you get what ever random color they have.

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.
