Flex Metal Spoon・Fork

OKABE YOSHOKKI CO.,LTD.(Niigata)

The flexible stainless-steel neck of the spoon/fork can be bent up or down, and right or left, allowing you to change the angle so that anyone can enjoy eating a meal comfortably. The oval-shaped handle provides good grip while preventing it from falling off the table. It can be also bent up and down. A corrugated design is employed for the handle to minimize weight despite being thick while the stainless-steel inside has a loop shape to realize an optimal weight to make it easy to hold when eating. The cutlery is processed from a stainless-steel plate. The neck part is made round like a rod using a unique technology while 18/8 stainless steel containing copper (XM-7) is added and applied with vacuum annealing method to make it easier to bend. Processed entirely in Tsubame City in Niigata Prefecture globally known for its metalworking industry, the products have a beautiful mirror finish achieved through the excellent polishing technique of the local craftspeople. Small and large sizes are available for respective items (spoon and spork), and the handle color can be selected from pink, yellow and blue. The spork has five tines ideal for both spearing food and scooping soup. The handle can be removed but it is compatible with washer and dryer as it can resist temperature up to 200°C. The metal part and the silicone rubber handle can be purchased separately.
