by fromLight but NOT Durable First off this is NOT a titanium spork as stated in some previous posts, it's aluminum. Hence the durability being an issue. I bought this as a spare right before my Rainier trip since I forgot my Snowpeak Ti spork. After hiking up to Camp Schurman on the first day I pulled it out for dinner and it was already bent, not a big deal though since it's pretty flimsy and I bent it right back into place. Overall it's a nice spork at a great price; however, expect it to bend in your pack and not last as long as Ti.

by fromLight, durable, but not smooth I thought this was as good as titanium got until I got another titanium spork with a polished bowl. That makes all the difference. This one just feels rough in your mouth somehow. The polished ones are much more like eating with regular stainless utensils. Price and weight are comparable.

by fromPretty good, but... I like to use this when out camping but the metal has a strange taste. To me it kind of tastes like i just licked a rock. (Trust me I know what that tastes like :P) Also, when it scrapes across my teeth it makes a sound like finger nails on a chalk board. I can't really hear the sound but I can feel it. It is very piercing and annoying.

by fromUber Lightweight and Ultra Cool. Great choice of aluminum for cutlery... The hard anodization, I guess, was to prevent the base metal from reacting with certain food additives. The tines on the spork are just right; long enough for pasta and noodles but doesn't affect the 'spoon' part of the spork for soup duties. I don't suppose the serrations on the table knife are going to last very long, either. But regardless, I still like them for the very lightweight and minimalistic design, does what it's supposed to do very well. Compared to the Snow Peak and Light My Fire sporks, I still prefer my Snow Peak. These come a close second.

by fromClose to perfect This spork is very good. I've tried it with a variety of things like canned peaches, pasta with meat sauce, and cereal. The tines are quite acceptable for grabbing up food and the spoon holds plenty. I torqued with my fingers a bit without any bend so unless I'm gonna use it as a pry bar, should be good. I only wish the handle was a bit longer which would be more comfortable in my larger (not circus size!) hands and cooking in a pot would be easier. If your thinking about getting one for your kids, my six year old found the spork too large for his mouth.

by fromDoes the job Lightweight all-purpose utensil perfect for backpacking. It's the only utensil we take on hiking & camping trips. Tines are long enough to spear pasta, holds soup and oatmeal well, long enough to stir in a 1L pot. My mouth is a little small, so the titanium edges of the spoon can rub my upper lip and leave tender spots in the corners if I'm not careful, but my husband has no problem with it. Also, I tend to misplace/lose everything - keeping it clipped to my pack with the handy carabiner has nixed that. No problems with durability, either.

by fromSpork Have used this as my only utensil for numerous camping trips. Great little spork. Only complaint is that the spoon aspect is large.

by fromAwesome I got this for backpacking and took it on a two day hike. This is a great light weight spark that weighs as much as the carabiener that comes on the end.
