SEA TO SUMMIT - Delta Cutlery Set

DESCRIPTION                                                                                 

The Sea To Summit Delta Cutlery Set is a compact three piece cutlery set that includes a knife, spoon and fork.  The set comes with a unique carabiner that clips the three handles of the set securely together while providing a standard attachment option.  The back of each utensil has a waffle pattern which appears to be designed to augment the grip.   Although the knife blade is advertised to include a half serrated half straight blade, it is more like two-thirds serrated to one-third straight blade.  The spoon is a good sized soup spoon holding 10 ml (33 fl oz) and the fork is of similar size.  Overall the Delta Cutlery Set appears to be everything it is advertised to be.

FIRST IMPRESSIONS

Although only 6 inches (15.24 cm) in length the Delta Cutlery Set does not appear to be too small to hold comfortably.  The knife has a much larger serrated edge than flat edge as indicated in the product description, more like two-thirds one-third, which works quite well.  I did a quick at home test with the fork and knife, consisting of a baked potato, pork chop and blanched carrots (this would well exceed what I would normally cook on a backpacking trip).   The knife did surprisingly well cutting through the chop with relative ease. The fork which has rounded tines did surprisingly well on the carrots, speared them without any real trouble. Although flexible they do not appear to be in jeopardy of breaking.  The spoon looks to be of adequate size and shape which should be easy to use with soups and anything else I might want to scoop up.

Over the duration of the test I will see how they hold up as my primary cooking utensils, if they stain and their general usability. I am particularly interested in seeing if they are too small for comfortable use with mitts once it gets cold out.  

SUMMARY

Generally, my first impressions are that the Delta Cutlery Set is a durable lightweight set that will function very well without breaking.
