Do sporks remind you of elementary school cafeterias? A flimsy plastic spoon with forky bits to help you eat canned fruit cocktail? You may have used one to launch a mound of mashed potatoes across the crowded room.
Before you dismiss this an an over-the-top hipster trend, check out this glowing review.
This product meets my needs exactly. I carry a rather large backpack pretty much anywhere I go. I wanted a single utensil to be useful for nearly any purpose. This is that utensil.
The titanium is nice and strong yet flexible. I chose this material for that very reason. In a portable utensil such as this, I want light weight, flexibility, and longevity. Aluminum is a contender but it fatigues worse than titanium when bent such as might happen tossing a bag around nearly every day in a year, which is a distinct possibility in a bag that is carried daily. I also ordered the Sea To Summit Alpha Light Utensils and they are also an excellent quality item which serves a different purpose equally well (this item is going in my survival kit, it potentially has more uses than the spork). I’m not a climber/packer(unless you count urban packer), yet I do maintain a certain mentality to that effect with certain items I pack such as these. Either would do you well, I merely prefer the single unit spork for everyday usage. I suppose my recommendation would be to get both(types) and find what fits you the best. You can’t really go wrong with either.
