This Badass Tactical Spork Could Save Your Life
But don’t even try bringing the blade-hiding utensil on a plane.
Combined utensils aren’t a new concept. In fact, back in the 19th century Samuel W. Francis patented a combination knife, fork and spoon. For some reason, it didn’t catch on. Perhaps because he didn’t have a catchy name for it, like “The Kniforoon.”
Fast forward over 140 years and KA-BAR Knives has come up with a modern take on the all-in-one eating tool: The Tactical Spork.
Made from resilient Grilamid, this handy implement sports a hidden 2 1/2-inch serrated blade. Aside from slicing vittles and other small survivalist tasks, it could be used as a self-defense tool in a pinch—just grasp it at the ends and pull, rather than where it locks in the middle.
Also, as fun as it would be to bring it on a plane, it’d probably just be confiscated. But you most likely wouldn’t need it anyway, since they don’t serve meals in coach as often and first class provides fine silverware.
