CR9100C: Eat’N Tool | Bead Blast
Columbia River

Yes, Inspired Design works. The Eat’N Tool is a high-tech spoon, fork, bottle opener, screwdriver/pry tip, and metric wrench with a carry carabiner. Ya gotta eat, so never be without an Eat’N Tool in the outdoors.

Here at Columbia River Knife & Tool (CRKT) 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 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).

About the Designer
Liong Mah is a designer working in New York City. He says, "As a kid my uncle would give me pocket knives and I would see what I could change to improve the design. My books would have knife drawings in them instead of school work. About ten years ago I started reading books on how to build folders.This helped me understand the anatomy of a folding knife. I learned how to use AutoCAD and that has really helped me to create my designs. I like to blend old styles with modern materials, to create a knife with that is safe, functional and beautiful. I prefer blade and handle materials that are low maintenance, because I know that most people do not want to have to oil and wipe down their blade each time they use it. Doing collaborations has helped me bring out my ideas. I have been very lucky to work with some of the best makers in the industry, including Allen Elishewitz, John W. Smith, Howard Viele, Edward Baca, Phil Boguszewski, Jeremy Marsh, Brad Southard and Keith Edick." He is designer of the CRKT Eat'N Tool.

Great for kids
Face it: Food is just plain better with a spork. This is a fun, kid-friendly multitool. Like any multitool, it doesn't do the job of being a screwdriver/wrench/fork/spoon as well as any dedicated version of a screwdriver/wrench/fork/spoon, but that's not a negative at all. That's just what happens when sharing functions in one tool. And who knows? Having one around may be just the ticket for a given situation. It's cheap and high quality. What's not to like?

Nice product
Needed one of these for a while to throw in my bag. It's a nice design. I doubt I will ever use the hex wrench and screwdriver functions but the spork and bottle opener will come in handy. My only criticism is the size and volume of the spoon....it's pretty small.

A truly useful compact tool when you are out and about.
as yet I have not been out hunting, fishing, or hiking with the tool. However, I have been carrying it just in my day-to-day living activities and it has proven to be very useful if I drop him for a quick bite at a fast food restaurant or a grocery store for a snack or on the go meal.

Love it.
Use it for light backcountry trips. Not for everyone due to its short nature. Tools are very handy and well thought of. Over great quality from CRKT.
