Following successful field trials with the British Army and SAS, British inventor Bower & Wood has successfully launched the HyTensil cutlery set into the outdoor market.
Designed and manufactured in the UK, the innovative multi-use eating utensil is built to last, having been put through its paces in extreme temperatures and tough conditions.
The travel cutlery set and its carry case are also fully protected against bacterial growth between cleanings, with the addition of SteriTouch antimicrobial protection. A silver-based additive is embedded into the tough polypropylene during the manufacturing process, for a robust and permanent solution to cross contamination.
The HyTensil was designed to fit into the outdoor lifestyle, where its compact yet hardwearing construction makes it ideal for camping and backpacking trips.
With recent media focus turning to single-use plastics, the European parliament has backed a ban on lightweight disposable items such as plastic cutlery, so it’s hoped the HyTensil could also provide a practical alternative.
