CRKT Eat'N Tool

rated 4.5 of 5 stars

For what it is, the Eat'N Tool gets the job done well, and then some. It's one small piece of metal that functions as a spork, can opener, flat blade screwdriver, and somewhat limited wrench. I usually keep it in my pocket, even when at home.

Pros

  • Versatility
  • Small size

Cons

  • Heavy for its size

Ease of Use:

It's one solid piece of metal that is a decent enough spork. The wrench sockets are a bit iffy, but they're handy to have if they just happen to fit a bolt and you're without proper tools. The only major downfall is the lack of a handle for deeper containers, but grabbing it with a multi-tool is a quick solution.

Features:

The can opener has come in handy plenty of times in daily life and in the field. It's not an item you ever seem to have when you really need it, so I'm glad they thought to add one onto the shape.

Construction & Durability:

I'm not sure about the metal used, but the weight suggests steel. It's 1.5oz, which is heavy for something so small, but that's still a negligible amount of weight. I've had no problems with the metal rounding off or bending. The finish has held up, with just a slight amount of wear on the edges from living in a pocket.

Over the two years I've had it, I've had nothing but good things to say about the Eat'N Tool. It serves a simple purpose as an eating utensil, and the other functions have made it extremely handy to carry around. The small amount of weight it has over titanium utensils is really a non-issue.
