Eating utensils are often reimagined for portability and convenience. The Baladeo Eco133, for example, is a penknife-like cutlery set designed to be as lightweight as possible, while the Picnic Cutlery set takes a modular approach. The Kuma, however, is even simpler than both of those.
The Kuma is a small oval stainless steel spoon/fork, or spork if you prefer. It looks like a conventional spoon minus the long handle and with prongs at one end for use as a fork. For use as a spoon, it is held at the slightly flattened pronged end with liquid or food able to be picked up in the scoop at the other end. It will be available in a number of different colors and with an optional protective travel pouch.
A crowdfunding campaign is underway for the Kuma and you can pledge from US$10 to receive your own Kuma spork, assuming everything goes to plan with its production. Deliveries are expected to begin in June 2015.
Have a look at the pitch video below for a closer look at the project.
