Tactical Spork

You remember sporks, right? The plastic spoon-fork hybrid your school cafeteria provided as the only utensil required to eat the gelatinous mélange of ingredients unfit for zoo animals that comprised your fifth-grade lunch? Well, that tool might bring back unhappy childhood memories, but it is actually a useful utensil in the field. For one thing, it eliminates the need for a spoon and a fork, which take up precious millimeters and grams in your overstuffed tactical backpack. Another advantage of the spork is…well, we can't really think of one, but thankfully, Columbia River Knife and Tool has.

The company's Eat'N Tool is a hyper-compact tactical spork with a bottle opener, screwdriver/pry tip and three different-sized metric wrenches, held to your gear via an included mini-carabiner, which CRKT's lawyers insisted upon noting is not weight bearing. All of these tools, plus the indispensible pronged spoon make the Eat'N Tool a sensible addition to your go-bag, even if your memories of spork usage involve flinging so-called meatballs at the girl you wanted to marry when you were seven, or in the case of our editors, last week.
