Yes, Inspired Design works.®

The new Eat’N Tool™ is a high-tech spoon, fork, bottle opener,

screwdriver/pry tip, and metric wrench with a carry carabiner.

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, always 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 canisters.

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).

The Eat’N Tool is available in a bead-blast finish, or with a food grade black non-stick

coating. You’ll find both models in the camping section of your favorite sports or outdoor

store, packaged in small retail clampacks, and priced at only $6.99 MSRP.
