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.
It’s that time of year when spooks and ghosts and scary meals (on purpose) are just around the corner. We have looked at Skeleton Cutlery before but this time it’s for the appetizers as opposed to the main course.
These skeleton food picks look like a bone hand and are approximately 5″ inches long. They are made of plastic and come with 72 pieces to a package. Great for appetizers, drink skewers, and picky kids. There’s a pun there somewhere I’m certain.
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.
I’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!
