Warning: I will say this much the knife is sharp out of the box and opens firmly I don't recommend using it unless you have separated it into its 3 pieces as the fork or spoon may detach while cutting something. " I got myself pretty good when the spoon detached while I was using it to cut up some tough meat." Long and short this product is 3 separate pieces that attach to each other for portability and convenience they are not 1 item that comes apart.
The only thing that kept me from giving this item 5 stars is the locking mechanism. when you attach these pieces back together into one part several times they tend to get a bit loose and don't hold the pieces together anymore. I discovered his on the 5-6 trip I took with the set. but if you are like me you clean them as soon as your done and put them back in your pouch problem solved.
Size: As others have mentioned in the reviews, this set is kind of small. IMHO, it's better that it's small because it's made for travelling, not for everyday use at home. If people go for camping, the SPOON will not do well if you want liquidy soup. Might as well bring the bowl up to your face and slurp up all the low viscosity soup. I would imaging it wouldn't be a problem eating beans or chunky food.
The KNIFE as other reviewers is very sharp, feels stable in the hand, and it locks securely in place with a release button and the end of the handle. If you're right-handed, the spoon will be in the palm of your hand and I think you get a better grip of the knife that way. When it's split up into 3 pieces, it does not feel awkward to hold in the hand like the Acme knife above. It still feels really nice and compact. Feels like a standalone knife.
The FORK! It simply is a compact fork. Not a fancy fork, but does its job. One thing I like about the idea of having a flat fork like this is that it folds into the handle just like the knife. It really is user friendly this way because we often eat with just either a fork or a spoon or use just a single item like a knife. One side protrude for the spoon is enough, can you imaging using a knife when you have the 2 bulges on both sides of the handle? I think it's smart to fold the fork in so that we can just use only the spoon, fork, or knife without feeling awkward and without splitting it up into 3 pieces everytime. Another thing I like about the fork is that... IT has a can bottle opener. I can use it to open a bottle of beer :D.
The CARRYING CASE! I have to say that the people from Ka-Bar did think of everything. The case is designed so that you can run your belt through and have it securely attached to the pants. It's a tough little pouch! I absolutely love everything about this Ka-bar knife, and it will be extremely useful having it while vacationing in the South East Asia in a few weeks which it will be used for eating exotic fruits, seafood, and stuffs in the rural locations or places where forks, spoons, and knives are not readily available....
* Excellent SHARP knife. You could easily use this instead of a utility knife in your pack. (Though you may void your warranty using it for non-food purposes.)
* Feels like a BIFL (Buy It For Life) item.
* Spoon & fork are a little small. This may bother some people.
After getting two of the SE KC5006S 4-Inch Camping Steel Detachable Knifes on Amazon for my husband and I to go hiking with, I was very disappointed in the quality. They were cheap, dull, flimsy and I couldn't imagine it lasting more than a season.
The Kabar Hobo, however, impressed me before I even opened the box-- with my hubby's comments.
Husband: "You bought a Kabar???"
Me: "Yeah, why?"
Husband: "Those are standard issued military knives."
Me: "Really? Do they come with spoons attached too?"
So HE was thinking of the combat knives and though disappointingly I didn't get a knife that could slaughter a bear, I was thoroughly impressed by the quality of the hobo knife. This set just feels good in your hand. I don't mind at all that the spoon and fork are smaller (see my comparison pictures in the Customer Images section) and I couldn't imagine using one of those titanium sporks after something as nice (and affordable) as this.
It takes some getting used to taking apart the set--you slide up the spoon and fork from each side of the knife--and it should be noted that it's a locking knife, you need to depress the bottom latch in order to open or close the knife. I highly recommend it to anyone hiking, backpacking, or camping.
