Looking at the assortment of combination utensils in the market like sporks, knorks, and spifes – you’d think that they’d have thought of every possible combination there is. Each of the above combines two utensils, and I’m pretty sure you’ve used at least one of them a couple of times in your lifetime: spork is a spoon and fork in one; the knork is a knife and fork in one; and the spife is a spoon with a knife-like handle.
But why limit the combination to just two utensils? This was probably what designer Krisztina Bozzai wondered, which led her to come up with the 3-in-1 utensil that’s a spoon, a fork, and a knife, simply called “THIRD.”
Before you complain about how unusable it looks, here’s how it works: first, you’re supposed to use it as a spoon. Drink your soup, scoop up whatever you need to scoop – and when you don’t have any food that you can only eat or drink with a spoon, break the 3-in-1 in half.
This effectively splits the utensil into a fully-usable knife and fork so you can continue eating your food the way it’s meant to be eaten.
