THE BRORK (knife, fork, spoon, toothbrush in one)

Bushwalking gear and paraphernalia. Electronic gadget topics (inc. GPS, PLB, chargers) belong in the 'Techno Babble' sub-forum.

TIP: The online Bushwalk Inventory System can help bushwalkers with a variety of bushwalk planning tasks, including: Manage which items they take bushwalking so that they do not forget anything they might need, plan meals for their walks, and automatically compile food/fuel shopping lists (lists of consumables) required to make and cook the meals for each walk. It is particularly useful for planning for groups who share food or other items, but is also useful for individual walkers.

Unfortunately there's no weight advertised so I don't know if it will class as ultralight, but for your amusement regardless...

The brork

It's a knife, fork, spoon and toothbrush in one.

Update: Expected to be around 21 grams without the hygiene cover. (Says crowdfund founder Mitch, to my query on weight.)

I am so glad that it is apparently humourous but I don't see it as being functional. The knife is unlikely to cut anything let alone spread something on a biscuit or bread, the spork part is just a failed spoon (as are all sporks) that cannot hold liquid and as for the tooth brush it seems positioned to annoy the crap out of ones wrist.

my brain HURTS !

So far $4,396 raised by 97 backers.
That is an average of $45 each.
That is why my brain hurts.

They ruined a perfectly good spoon for that. Sigh.

Oh, I don't know.....they converted a perfectly useful spoon into a heavy toothbrush with an unweildy handle. They really missed an opportunity here. Where Is the AM/FM radio?

I guess it could be used as a poo hole digger/toothbrush?

:lol:
Looks fairly cool in my opinion, maybe even practical for some.

If nothing else would remind people to clean their teeth while in the outdoors!
