Sexy utensils? Yes, if they’re these snap-together stainless steel tools. The knife has a 3-inch, foldable blade, and the full-size spork extends to 6.5 inches for reaching into the corners of food bags, so despite its diminutive weight, it doesn’t feel like you’re trying to wolf down dinner with a teaspoon.

The skeleton handles save weight and make for easy cleaning, but don’t expect to use the minimalist knife for heavy work. It’s a kitchen tool, pure and simple. Bonus: integrated bottle and can openers. $60; 1.8 oz.; hyaliteequipment.com
