      Comments about Hobo Knife:

      I like to eat fried chicken alot for lunch and occasionally get fried okra for my side. A spork is about useless for this cause. I've been looking for a combo like this for several years. I couldn't believe it when it showed up in the catalog.

      I've been using it for a couple months now and am pleased. Surprisingly the knife holds its edge; I use a pocket knife sharpener I bought from Duluth to keep it sharp.

      Like another reviewer - I struggled to figure out how to separate the tool. Figured it out by accident while cleaning the blade with a napkin. Is it so hard to include some instructions these days? That's my only disappointment with Duluth regarding this product.

        Comments about Hobo Knife:

        W,hen I got this item, I knew it was supposed to come apart into two halves (knife and fork)... but I couldn't get them apart. So I struggeled and finally called you guys. Nobody there could explain how to get them apart. After a frusstrating 20 minuttes, I fiddled around and inally got them apart. Sigh. I hung up with no hellp from Duluth Trading co.
        Suggested verbal instructions: "Hold knife vertially with smaller end up Face blades to left. Hold back half (knife) firmly and slide front half (fork) down about 1/8 inch or so. Now wiggle them and pull them apart. TaDa! Reverse procedure to reassemble." Please include a line drawing to two showing how it is supposed to work.
        I bought two hobo knives (one for me and one for a gift) and fhe first one I tried to separate was really stuck. When I finally got it to separate, it was easy. Sigh.

            Showed the hobo knife to a coworker while eating lunch.
            A couple hours later he told me he had gone on line and ordered the bone handle version.

              Smaller than I expected. Anyone with bear paws would have trouble. Overall it is the right size as a carry along. Comes with a high quality leather sheath for your belt. Crafted from high-quality metal and wood. Beats plastic utensils hands down for eating a porterhouse.
