hicorfe Portable Utensils Set with Case

Bring-your-own cutlery (BYOC) is getting a lot more attention these days due to health concerns. Taking your own cutlery to the office or eating out at cafes is more common now. One of the draw backs of various portable packed flatware was size and easy of use. They tended to be tiny weird plastic contraptions. The company “hicorfe” looks to address that with this set of portable adult sized utensils.

This is a proper knife, fork and spoon in carrying case. The knife has decent serrations for cutting meat and they all have nice wooden handles. The durable case is made from food grade PP Plastic and the cutlery from 430 stainless steel and natural wood. They had some problem with the case design but rebuilt it and are offering refunds on old ones.

They are a decent size as well: 7.8 inches knife, 7.5 inches fork, 7.6 inches spoon and 9.3 inches for the carrying case.

Not dishwasher safe due to the wood on the handles but this really should just be hand washed and dried properly before being put in the case.

Pharrell Williams & Pentatonic Create Coronavirus Cutlery

Pharrell Williams & Pentatonic Create Coronavirus Cutlery

Pharrell Williams is popular singer (who did that great song with Daft Punk). Pentatonic (not the band) is a design studio.

Together they have created the Pebble which is a bring-your-own cutlery (BYOC) set made from recycled CDs.

The kit comprises of a knife, a fork, a spoon, a straw and a set of chopsticks that fold away inside a case that can be easily carried.

To reduce the risk of transmission, many businesses have temporarily stopped using single-use plastic cutlery, which has seen a surge in popularity during the pandemic.

“The wasted CDs are first sorted and cleaned which means separating and purifying the feedstock, removing and recycling where possible contaminants such as cases and foreign waste material” Pentatonic cofounder Jamie Hall.

The article is so full of info it needs a Table of Contents, check it out:

This is our favorite quote: “A single five-piece flatware setting (meaning a salad fork, a dinner fork, a knife, a soup spoon, and a teaspoon) can cost anywhere from a few dollars for stainless steel to well over a thousand dollars for sterling silver.”. Something we see here at The Cutlery Review everyday and try to help you with.

Morsel Spork – For Camping and Lunch

Morsel Spork

We are big fans of BYOC (Bring Your Own Cutlery) around here. And now with the “new normal” having your own personal clean cutlery seems to make even more sense.

The morsel Spork which they title as a “Camping and Backpacking Lunch Gear Accessory” is a 5 in 1 Cutlery item. It functions as a spoon, fork, knife(ish) and spatula with rubber edge.

There is the Regular in red at 7.5 inches and the XL in blue at 10.5 inches. The XL is great for reaching to the bottom of those pesky MREs or dehydrated food pouches.

It’s USA Made BPA free and dishwasher safe.

The rubber edge and angle of the design really makes it look like it would be perfect for getting that last little bit of Nutella out of the jar.
