I'm guessing NATO has lost a good portion of it's budget if this is truly a standard issue set.

Don't get me wrong, everything you get here will do its job and take up very little room in your kit bag. That's what it was designed for and what more did you want of it anyway?!

Well I had hoped for better quality material & finish.

The holder is laser cut and the edges aren't deburred to a standard I might have expected from a food utensil, leaving them a little rough to the touch & arguably a bit sharp in the corners.
Thankfully the actual eating utensils themselves do not suffer this problem and are smooth along every surface.

The fit isn't particularly clever either and gives the impression that the utensils have each been taken from a different set and mixed & matched together. Indeed this may be the case.

Sadly, from a background in engineering & manufacturing I know all too well that these quality & design issues are a result of mega-mass production and the money-saving implementations that govern it.

End of the day, this is simple kit for a simple purpose. It'll do what it's supposed to and that's enough for the price. If you want high quality, however then better to pay more.

I'm pleased with this purchase but I could've been pleasedER!

Very nice size and fits together well, I just need to put the can opener/holder in a vice to tighten it up but thats merely personal preference. Comes with plastic cover which feels like it would fall apart on the first day of being in a backpack but at least it'll keep them separate from everything else. The size of the cutlery is nice although be warned the spoon IS too big for children and the fork you should only give to those who won't shut up.

Overall a tidy peice of kit for an amazing price.

Is what you get. A stainless knife, fork and spoon which fit together and don't cost much money. There is also a can opener and bottle opener incorporated but I havn't used those. One thing to bear in mind. I found the edges of the spoon to be a little sharp and I had to smooth them with emery cloth. If the finish was a little better I would have given 5 stars.For the money though there is little room for complaint.

I bought this as I recently lost my knife from a similar set I have own for many years. This new one is ok but made of a lighter gauge material. I did have to remove some sharp edges from the holder which was a little disappointing but for the money, can't really complain. Service was excellent, prompt.

Good quality and durable but too heavy if you have to carry them. Items are also not securely connected. You may as well tie together the same items from your kitchen cupboard.

I bought these as I needed to supplement my current set. This is a really good piece of kit and solid should last a good few years if not a lifetime - go buy it and use it.

These may not be the cheapest but quality is really good. I Bought 1 set they were good enough to buy 3 more sets. We are scout leaders and need our stuff to last.

The can opener on the holder is a bit useless and I ended up using my Swiss Army Knife.

Otherwise, this is a great kit that feels good in the hand, and not flimsy. They're easy to clean and are a good size (not too big or too small).

Compact and functional. It does what it should to a tin! Great for camping or for the now traditional 'travelling' experience which appears to have become a rite of passage for every university graduate.
