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.

The image above is cute and punny in it’s own way. And there is a connection to this article on Haaretz.com even though it’s a tenuous one. I’ll leave it to the hardcore Star Trek fans to figure it out.
It’s turns out there is no Hebrew word for spork but they do have a great word that sums up all cutlery. Here’s a snippet from Haaretz.com:
“That acronym is sakum, which stands for sakin, kaf umazleg, “knife, spoon and fork.” Like “spork,” it doesn’t make the distinction between different kinds of spoons, with kaf, a soup spoon, tablespoon or serving spoon – basically a big spoon – standing in for both itself and its little sibling, the kapit, or teaspoon.”
It’s a great article about this word of the day.

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 Canada Day and what could be more of a Canadian food than poutine? And how about some ice cream with that poutine? And how about a poutine fork, an ice cream spoon and a knife in either stainless steel or 14 karat gold plate?
Anneke van Bommel‘s Silhouette Cutlery Series is based on disposable options found at roadside snack stands or other venues of convenience, and van Bommel trades the single-use nature for a more elevated approach. The gold makes it pricey but the design and case are wonderful.
Happy Canada Day!
