Albatross is doing a really great thing by creating a nonplastic razor that doesn't need any specialty proprietary blades; then taking used steel blades back for upcycling into this cutlery set! I love to support a recycling program like that! It is compact, neat and lightweight. They packaged the cutlery set in a hemp!!! sack. The only downside is that there is some percentage of brand new steel; it's not a 100% recycled steel item. We all need cutlery to go with us whenever we are away from home, and this set is a nice small tidy set.
