From the manufacturer:
At Columbia River Knife & Tool®
) we're inspired by great design. Our I.D. Works®
products are not tools you will find anywhere else. We're motivated by design that is both inspired and functional, as created 500 years ago by painter, sculptor, architect, and inventor Leonardo da Vinci, who said "observe everything" in nature. We've partnered with the best and brightest designers of today who share this vision of putting functional art in your hand. They are organic and ergonomic shapes, sometimes whimsical, alway useful. These unique tools make up our growing I.D. Works®
line. Put them to use, enjoy them, and always remember what inspires you!
Our new Eat'N Tool
is the brainchild of New York City designer Liong Mah. At first glance it looks like the familiar spoon/fork "spork" combination, but Liong has used his ingenuity and computer-aided design skills to create a lightweight, high-tech outdoor tool.
Yes, there is an ergonomic spoon, and a short-tined fork. But in addition, there's a handy bottle opener on one side. The right side of the handle is ground to provide an emergency screwdriver blade, which will also work as a pry for opening cannisters.
The large central hole is not only designed for finger gripping, but also keeps the Eat'N Tool weight down. Three metric wrench reliefs (10 mm, 8 mm, 6 mm) are useful for emergency repairs, and result in a tool weight of just 1.5 ounces (43 g).
For easy snap-on carry on D-rings or loops on clothing and packs, there is a carry carabiner (non-weight-bearing).
