On the Third Day of Christmas, My True Love Dug in with a Spork

We like to call this Eat’N Tool from Columbia River Knife & Tool a “tactical spork.” Not only because it comes in handy, but also because we just like saying the word spork.

So you may think the idea of a tactical spork is a joke, but seriously, whenever you see one if real life, your first thought is “Okay. That’s actually pretty f’in cool!” Designed by custom-knife designer, Liong Mah, who focuses on function, the CRKT Eat’n Tool is superbly built of stainless steel and has a spoon/fork (spork), bottle opener (for opening adult beverages), screwdriver/pry tip, metric wrenches (10mm, 8mm, 6mm), and a belt/gear clip carabiner. Get you another carabiner to climb rocks, though. This one isn’t weight bearing.

I have the bead-blast finish model, but it also is available with a food-grade, non-stick black coating.

The CRKT Eat’N Tool is perfect for your purse, bug-out-bag, car, backpack, or camping gear. I keep mine in my purse, because then I have it with me always. It is an invaluable tool at the office during lunchtime. It is the perfect pal for your MREs, too. You can use the short-pronged fork end of the Eat’N tool to stab little raviolis and meatballs and other small bits, but the spoon part will totally scoop up more than a large mouthful of food.

The big hole in the middle gives you a better grip and cuts down weight. The CRKT Eat’N Tool weighs only one and a half ounces and has an overall length of four inches. It takes up no room at all in your gear.

Even though the Eat’N Tool doesn’t have any sharpened edges, the short prongs on the fork double as a weapon in an emergency. It would certainly hurt if you had to jab it in someone’s eyeball.

I’ve had mine for nearly a year now and it’s proven itself over and over again. The finish is still nice on it and it hasn’t gotten bent after all I’ve put it through.

It is a perfect stocking stuffer for travelers, boy/girl scouts, hikers, campers, and military personal.

More than a spork, the Eat’N Tool from CRKT.
