With the classy appeal of a switchblade (although much safer) Pinchy is an outdoor cutlery set where the protective case turns into the cutlery’s ergonomic grip. Just pinch and flip and the case opens, with a metal spoon, fork, or knife popping out. Once the case locks back in place, you’ve got a perfectly useful, kid-friendly cutlery set that’s practically built for the outdoors.

Pinchy makes a pretty compelling case about how outdoor cutlery isn’t as intuitive or as well designed as it should be. Some of them are built like Swiss knives, looking more like medical equipment than classy cutlery. Others come with disassembled designs that need user manuals… and the worst of them all? Cutlery sets with cases that get lost, or are cumbersome and difficult to use/open. Pinchy changes all that by making the case a part of the cutlery. Shaped to be compact and easy to grip, the case is hollow, and holds the metallic half of the spoon/fork/knife inside. Pinch it open and flip the metal end out, and the case goes from being an outer cover to an ergonomic grip that’s easy to hold and maneuver. When you’re done, just flip the cutlery back in and they go right back in their protective little shell.

Each Pinchy is made from a combination of 304 stainless steel and antibacterial plastic that makes the overall cutlery piece durable, food-safe, and reusable. The Pinchy’s design is intuitive to use (even a kid can operate it) and can be opened or even closed single-handedly, making it disability-friendly.

Moreover, each Pinchy comes with a small bump on its base that allows it to tilt at a 15° angle, preventing the actual metal cutlery from touching the tabletop surface. This effectively keeps your table clean while eating, and prevents your Pinchy from probably touching any foreign surfaces and getting dirty. There’s even a loop at the end of the Pinchy’s grip, so you can hang it in your kitchen or from your backpack.

You can choose to have your Pinchy in one of 4 different colors, and each cutlery set comes with a special travel gogo bag that allows to store whole sets of Pinchy in one place, and protects the Pinchy from getting scratched or scuffed inside your backpack. The Pinchy travel cutlery set is available for a discounted £25 GBP or $31 USD, and you can pledge for yours using the link below.
