Modular Picnic Cutlery

This Picnic Cutlery Set Combines a Spoon, Fork, Knife and Bottle Opener

— May 2, 2014 — Art & Design
Picnic Cutlery is a set of three stainless steel cutlery pieces that are designed to be portable and easy to use on the go. It is an eco-friendly alternative to cheap plastic forks and spoons, and an easy-to-use improvement over other spoon-fork-knife hybrids that require one tool to be folded out of the way before another can be used.

The 77-gram product consists of a knife, fork and spoon that interlock and fit into a compact 9 cm soft plastic case. The case itself is sealed shut with a zinc alloy lid that doubles as a bottle opener.

The Picnic Cutlery case is so small that it can be hooked onto a key chain, with its 40 cm nylon strap keeping it from being misplaced.

The Picnic cutlery set sells for US$49.50.
