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.

  • Packable Backpacks For Traveling And Everyday Carry

    thumb AmazonBasics Ultralight Packable Day Pack Backpack 1I've carried a packable backpack in my main Kenneth Cole reaction (work) backpack for years. The actual packable backpack has changed from time to time, but there's always one in the backpack. Having a secondary backpack has come in handy many times over the years, and it's one of the first things that I check for when I do a bag inventory to make sure I have what I need in my Everyday Carry.

    Packable backpack are usually very light, and when packed up, don't take much space. Often, I'll use mine when I'm going to lunch, or to an off site client meeting and I don't need to carry the whole main bag (it's 20lbs). This list of packable backpacks are some of the best that you could have in your EDC in case you need more hauling capacity.

  • Do You Need An RFID Blocking Wallet, Or Is It Not Necessary?

    thumb do i need an rfid blocking walletEver since RFID blocking wallets came out, people have been wondering "Do I really need an RFID wallet?" Here's the thing. In the good old USA, most credit cards, IDs and other cards don't have RFID yet, and beyond that, "Skimming" information from an RFID card, the hacker (if you will) would need to have a reader inches away from the card. The fact is that if you don't have any RFID chips in your cards (not to be confused with the chip cards with the smartchip embedded) then you don't have anything to worry about and having an RFID wallet is not necessary. If for some reason you do have an RFID card, the hacker would have to get uncomforatably close to you in order to get a read on the card. All else failing, it would be possible to place an RFID reader under a chair that you sit on, bringing the skimmer within range, but again, other than security companies showing all of us that it's possible and scaring the masses, this really hasn't been an issue in the US at all, partly due to the slow inception of RFID technology.

  • Corsair Stealth Survivor USB Drives And USB Drive Encryption

    Corsair Survivor USB Drive Kid TestedAwhile back, I happened to get ahold of a Corsair Stealth Survivor USB Drive.

    It was an impulse purchase, but what tech geek (like me) could pass up a really cool USB drive like this? After a three months of hard use, a couple run ins with my niece using it for a teething toy, and dropping it from twenty feet, it still works 100%.

    What an excellent investment!

  • 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.
