The CRKT Eat’N Tool is the brainchild of talented knife and tool designer Liong Mah. When I first saw it I thought it was another spork-type combo, but instead Liong has used his skills to create a lightweight and useful outdoor tool.
The Eat’N Tool features a ergonomic spoon, a short-tuned fork and bottle opener on one side. The right side of the handle is ground to provide an emergency screwdriver blade.
The large central hole designed for finger gripping and also keeps the overall weight down. Three metric wrench reliefs (10 mm, 8 mm, 6 mm) are useful for emergency repairs (think mountain bike).
The Eat’N Tool comes with its own carabiner (non-weight-bearing) for attachment to your pack. The tool is available in a bead-blast finish (9100C), or with a food grade black non-stick coating (9100KC).
I found that initially that it was a little awkward to use but after time it became almost second nature. The bowl of the spoon element is a little shallow so soup could be a problem but the fork works surprisingly well given its size. While it is not a direct replacement for my trusty spork it certainly is good enough to become part of my kit and good value for money.
