The Buck Travelmate – Everyday Carry Cutlery

Buck travelmateEveryone that knows me and this blog knows there are two things that really catch my attention: Everyday Carry Cutlery and Nutella Spreaders. You can imagine how excited I was to see this new piece from Buck.

First off, it isn’t a pocket everyday carry but definitely something to have in the backpack or picnic basket. The 4.87 inch serrated blade (9.87 inches with handle) is made of 410HC stainless steel and perfect for cutting bread and spreading delicious Nutella. Then there is the fork which has a bottle opener, can opener, flathead screwdriver and barbecue grill scraper. Could you ask for more? One last thing is the antimicrobial injection molded sheath for storage and carry. It is covered by Buck’s Forever Warranty and it’s dishwasher safe.

Keychain Cutlery

keychain cutleryI’m a big fan of “Everyday Carry Cutlery” and have to resist many items I see available online these days. But this new piece of Keychain Cutlery from Pro-Idee Concept Store is very interesting indeed.

An interlocking knife, fork and spoon are conveniently hidden inside the 5 1⁄2″ key fob (about the size of an egg). Also included is a metal bottle opener. The cutlery is made of stainless steel, the bottle opener is zinc and the case black plastic. It comes with a handy travel strap. One catch is that it’s a little pricy at around $50 for a pair, but pretty cool looking.

Dear Fork

Everyday doesn’t have to be so serious. But it should include a cutlery reference none the less.

Plastic Silverware

plastic silverwareLook again at the picture, that is not real silverware, it’s plastic. It looks amazing, holds up very well compared to the white plastic fork you are used to, doesn’t have the weight of the real thing but two out of three ain’t bad.

Of course it isn’t dishwasher safe as that is neither hygienic nor will it survive the wash (the coating will delaminate).  Yes, that makes it disposable and not something we should do everyday (look at recyclable cutlery here) but for special events like a a big Christmas or New Year dinner this is just perfect.

The 160-pc set includes 40 forks (plus a bonus 40), spoons and knives. The price compared to washing the real thing or even renting from a catering company just can’t compare. And if someone steals a spoon, you won’t mind at all…
