Typically, I prefer stuffing my face to cutting a bitch, so Best Made's Hobo Knife definitely earns a spot on my Cool Shit list. Both retractable and detachable, the utensil set includes a fork, knife, and spoon whose compact, no-frills form is, according to the manufacturer, just as applicable today as it was when regularly whipped out of pocket by "the famous American migrant works and vagabonds of the early 20th century." Inspiring, huh? Actually, I don't really know what it means, but I think it's in some way alluding to The Grapes of Wrath and I hated that book.

What I prefer to think of when I see the Hobo Knife is a tool easily kept in my back pocket for the times I'm walking through a food court at the mall and just want a quick, stealthily-acquired bite of what everyone else having so I don't have to stand in line for a Pizzabon or pay $7.99 for Kung Pao Chicken. I believe the eating implement triumvirate will also store well in my glove box and make me the happiest man in the world on those rare occasions that I'm driving through the backcountry and spot a luscious helping of venison tartare lying motionless on the side of the road. Mmmm.

The stainless steel Hobo Knife measures 3-3/4" closed and 7" when open. It also comes with a black nylon storage case.
