Eatin' Cool With Eat N Tool

There is little worse than picking up some KFC for an impromptu picnic or a bit of your favorite Chinese take-away for dinner in the park only to discover once you get there that you have no utensils. In vain you desperately try to find a way to eat your food. Can you rip the lids into something resembling a spoon? Do you really Eat N Tool XL by Columbia River Knife and ToolEat N Tool XL by Columbia River Knife and Toolwant to eat those steaming mashed potatoes with your fingers? It is time for Eat N Tool XL to the rescue.

Even if you did get utensils with your food there is no guarantee that those flimsy bits of plastic will not break part way through your meal. With this metal tool you won't end up with a mouthful of plastic spork splinters.

The XL version is a sizeable upgrade from the original Eat N Tool spork design -- just about doubling the size for easier use.  This is not only a spork but a handy bottle opener as well. It also comes with three hex wrenches, although why you would need a selection of wrenches during a meal is beyond me. Actually it is a functional way to reduce the weight of the tool along with the grip hole. You can also use the tool as a screwdriver and a can opener.
