What’s the best thing to have with you when your 150cc motorcycle breaks down on the side of the road after coming from your favorite chicken and rice place? Well the answer to that is the CRKT Eat’n Tool! This little piece of engineering marvel is absolutely wonderful to have. It has everything that you could need to get through those times of being stuck. I have in the past few weeks had multiple times that I have had my motorcycle break down and all I needed to get back running is a 10mm wrench. Well guess what? CRKT Eat’n Tool has that. With 3 different sized wrenches you can pretty much get yourself out of any bind.
The next great feature of this tool is the bottle opener. What type of minimalist tool doesn’t have a bottle opener? The bad ones! Perfect for those late nights or early mornings when all you want is a cold refreshing beer but you can’t find a way to get it open. Bet you wish you had an Eat’n Tool. But let me go ahead and get to the most important part of this tool and the reason why it has it’s name. The Eat’n Tool has a SPORK! Who doesn’t love a good spork? Nobody thinks that they need a spork until it is too late. Just think about this. You’re stuck on the side of the road. The multiple different sized wrench fittings and flat head screwdriver can’t get you running again. You have already used the bottle opener to crack open that cold Presidenté you just bought. You have come to the conclusion that you are going to have to start hiking your way back into town to get help and you look over and see an avocado tree. Bet you wish you could cut one of those avocados open and use that super food to help fuel you on the way back. If you had an Eat’n Tool with you that is exactly what you could do. Use that flathead screwdriver to cut open the avocado and then start digging in with that awesome spork. I don’t know if that’s what Samuel W. Francis had envisioned the spork to be used for when he invented it but I bet you would be happy to have it with you. With this one tool you have so many different tools at your disposal that it would be irresponsible not to have this in your car, or your toolbox, or really any place that it can fit because you never know when you are going to need it.
The only place that I can see for improvement on this tool is the carabineer. It is lacking in durability but that is really the only shortcoming of this tool.
