“Open sourced” designs have become really common with the rise of the software and technology industries. Proponents of the idea believe that this type of licensing makes it easier for people to innovate and improve products making for a healthier market. So far, it’s worked pretty well for tech, and now the folks at SparkFun are looking to apply that same idea of open sourced design to the world of multi tools. Their first shot at that? The S.H.O.V.E.L spork.

These types of gadgets are a camping mainstay. Perfect for spooning beans and rice, cutting into pieces of bread, and even cracking open some bottles, they combine all of the utility three or four separate objects would provide down into one. The S.H.O.V.E.L (Semi-Horned Oblong Versatile Eating Ladle) in particular is a titanium tool that combines a serrated knife, a bottle cap opener, a six foot long piece of paracord, and a spork. You can buy this and pack it out with you, and then after thinking of some improvements, you can download the datasheet and CAD files for free to play around with the design. Prices start at just under $10. [Purchase]
