We’ve seen a great amount of multi-tools. Multi-tools shaped as credit cards, as pens, as bracelets. However, these only do one thing. They shrink your toolkit. Multi-tools, given their name, usually don’t go beyond tools, unless it’s the odd nail clipper or the bottle opener… and that makes them great for the tinkerer, the person who needs to fix things. They’re not particularly great for the traveler. Traveling/backpacking/camping have a slightly different set of requirements and an allen-key or a screw driver or a doesn’t do much in those scenarios.
The Muncher by Full Windsor, however isn’t a multi-tool. It’s a multi-utensil. Built for the slightly sophisticated Bear Grylls in you, this little piece of metal fits all the tools you need to survive in the wild. Weighing in at a mere 0.7 ounces (20grams) this bad-boy fits in 10 different pieces of camping equipment into one slick, pocketable mass. The Muncher’s design looks a lot like a spork, but that’s just from afar. On closer inspection you’ll see that apart from being a spoon/fork amalgamation it even cuts, peels, slices, opens, fastens/loosens, and even ignites! Yes, the Muncher comes with a pretty handy flint-stick that allows you to not just start the fire, but even open the tinned food, and eat said food once you’re done cooking.
The Muncher comes crafted in titanium, probably the most appropriate material for something of its nature. Titanium, for one, with its incredible strength makes great blades that don’t lose their edge easily. Titanium is also a wonderful material for making utensils because it doesn’t impart a metallic taste to the food, unlike Stainless Steel or Aluminum. It’s also known not to rust or catch stains, which means washing up after your dinner date with mother nature is an absolute breeze! Ditch the Swiss Army Knife the next time you go camping. The Muncher is a much better ‘weapon’ of choice!
