CRKT Eat 'N Tool Does More Than Feed The Beast!

crkt eat n tool

OK, so I admit... I'm just an IT Desk Warrior. My fitbit never clocks more than 6000 steps when I'm in the office, and I only get 6K when the server room is going down in flames (or a DDOS attack). 

It's times like this, when the IT team is under fire, that we often miss a formal lunch and have to resort to eating whatever we can when we have a moment between server reboots.

Doing a review on such a simple tool might seem odd, but the CRKT Eat 'N Tool is one of my best under-fire lunch friends. No matter the situation, the CRKT Spork offers assurances that whereever I am, I can eat... even if it's a plain ol' can of tuna, cold soup right from the can, or Quaker Oats oatmeal mixed with cold water from the water cooler down the hall.

I might make life as a server admin seem a bit harsh and spartan, but often times, when you and the understaffed and underpaid IT team battle attacks all day to keep your server farm running, it's a necessity.

The CRKT offers a firm, solid eating tool that does a lot more than just get you fed. While that's it's primary purpose, the CRKT Eat 'N Tool has 10mm, 8mm and 6mm nut drivers in it's handle that work well for racking servers.

There's also a flat edge that's touted as a screwdriver, but for IT work, I needed to grind the thickness down so that it could fit into the smaller screws found on these servers. 

After work, it's got a bottle opener on the side allowing you to crack that cold one with ease in the 40° server room with your closest friends. LOL

While nothing replaces a multitool, the CRKT Eat 'N Tool has gotten me through in a pinch, and yes, it gets me fed as well.

  • Best Watches Under $30 To Give For Christmas Presents

    casio ae1200 world time budget watch smI know, it's not even Thanksgiving, but I wanted to round up the best watches for under $30 that you could give to someone for a Christmas Present. I'm thinking in terms of office gift exchanges, Christmas gifts for friends and other situations where you need to get someone a really nice gift, but don't want to spend a lot of money to do so.

    I've rounded up the best watches for $30 and less into two categories. You have your Digital watches, the dual Analog / Digital face watches (called Ani-Digi), and then there's the classic Analog. Happy Watch Hunting!

  • Maxi Pads, Tampons and Diapers are NOT Good Blood Stoppers

    bleedoutIf you've been into Everyday Carry, prepping or survival for a while, you've probably seen or heard that you should put maxi pads, tampons or diapers into your bag for stopping blood in a critical situation. If you've seen these types of claims, then you need to know why it's actually not a good idea to put a maxi pad in your EDC for emergency bleeding control.

    Rather, spend the money on getting an actual trauma kit. They're not that expensive and you'll have the right equipment if you do find yourself in a situation where you have to stop hemorrahaging.

  • How To Put Together An Everyday Carry

    EDC pouches and modulesThere are quite a few levels of everyday carry, and while just carrying your keys, wallet, watch and phone is one of the most minimalistic, I usually have a set of items with me that can make life easier and better whether I'm at the office, on the commute or even out for the evening. Most people don't realize that an Everyday Carry doesn't have to just be one set of items that go everywhere, but rather it can be different "kits" for different situations. Let me explain...

  • Repurpose Beef Jerky Bags For Water Storage

    beef jerky bag water storageBeef Jerky is one of my favorite snacks. If it weren't so darn expensive, I'd be eating a lot more. Funny thing is that those bags that the Jerky comes it are completely waterproof! Most of the beef jerky bags also have a Ziploc enclosure to reseal the bag if you don't eat all the jerky (like that EVER happens). The seals on the side are really good as well, making the beef jerky bag the perfect bag when you have nothing else, and want or need to carry water.

  • Nebo Lil Larry 6373 Work Light 250 Lumens White/Red LED

    thumb NEBO LiL Larry Work LightOK, so I was saving the second Nebo work light for today's review. Yesterday, I reviewed the Nebo LEO 220 Lumens flashlight and this little flashlight is of similar design. Although it doesn't have the spotlight head that the LEO has, the Lil Larry (Stock# 6373) has it's own set of really cool features.

    As the title says, it's a 250 lumen work light, but has a low mode putting out about 100 lumens, and a red LED emergency flasher mode that blinks twice a second. The flashlight costs around $18 on Amazon, and is the perfect work light for your home, car or everyday carry bag.

  • US Army Compass Pouch LC-1 Coat & Belt Everyday Carry

    thumb US Army Compass Pouch EDC 10A couple days ago I stopped in Joe's Army Navy over in Royal Oak, MI. I wasn't looking for anything in particular, but as always, I walked out with some items. One of the items was a Compass Pouch (LC-1). I had a few of these a while ago, and I really liked them to keep small items in. With this one, I decided that I'd use it as a very small Pocket Everyday Carry that holds a few OTC Meds and First Aid. Due to it's small 4"x4"x1.5" capacity, it's perfect, and these compass pouches like mine, usually come with an Alice Clip that was the Molle System's predecessor. I like this little clip because it's easy to clip the pouch to my belt if needed. Let's take a look inside to see what I've put in it.
