HyTensil - Hygienic travel cutlery

01 Aug 2019 HyTensil

It’s always better to be safe than sorry!


With more and more people eating on the go, the HyTensil® cutlery set is just what is needed.


The cutlery set and its hard carry case are all fully protected against bacterial growth (including MRSA and E.Coli), with the addition of SteriTouch® antimicrobial protection.  SteriTouch® is compounded into the plastic before the injection moulding process, for a robust and permanent solution to cross contamination.  


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.


Following successful field trials, Bower & Wood Ltd successfully launched the HyTensil® cutlery set into the outdoor market at the end of September 2018. With sales around the world and featuring in the 2018 Christmas gift guide by Camping with Style and article posted by British Plastics in November 2018.


The features of the HyTensil®, in addition to being made in the UK and protected against bacteria growth, are;


  • 100% recyclable including the FSC cardboard packaging and paper instructions,
  • Dishwasher safe,
  • Extendable, retract able and compact,
  • FDA approved,
  • Manufactured to ISO9001 standards,
  • Lightweight - less than 120grams including case,
  • Hard robust lock shut carry case with stainless steel hinge pins,
  • X-Ray detectable.


The HyTensil® was originally designed for the military and outdoor pursuits. However, with recent media focus turning to single-use plastics, which saw the European parliament backing a ban on lightweight disposable items such as plastic cutlery, the HyTensil® provides a practical long lasting mainstream alternative with many added health benefits.
