Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not what I had hoped for I wanted to love these, but couldn't do it. First, the texture on these utensils is too gritty. Maybe I have sensitive teeth, but when the spoon or fork would drag against my teeth, it was like nails on a chalk board. The texture and holes in the handles make them more difficult to clean. The cheese from my Mountain House lasagna stuck to them like bathroom caulk. On the upside, these are very light and having the fork and knife is convenient when eating things like chicken breast as opposed to trying it with foon or spork.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of the best camping utensil sets Bought this in the store and hadn't read the reviews. When I read the comments about the "texture" I had to go check because I had not noticed, though I had used them several times. My mouth doesn't usually make direct contact with utensils when I eat. These do have a very slight "texture" to them compared to stainless, titanium or plastic, but I don't notice it while eating with them, and if I did I don't find it objectionable. There were comments about their being hard to clean. Other than perhaps if the spoon dips into a soup or stew I cannot imagine how people are getting food into the holes in the handles. The tip of a dish cloth should clean there handily. I don't have a dishwasher so I can't comment on that issue. I've handwashed mine a dozen or more times and the coating is holding up, will have to see how that goes over time. I much prefer these to a "spork". Their longer handles are nicer than the stainless cutlery set I've used. They are less bulky than the plastic set I have from REI. The serrated knife has worked well with ham and pot roast, haven't tried it on fried beef or pork yet. Their light weight is perfect for backpacking.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Look cool, but bad design and materials I was very happy to receive this set as a gift, since I wanted to avoid throwing away plastic knives, forks, and spoons at work. However, there are two major problems with these: (1) they have lots of holes that make cleaning much more difficult. What's the point of reusing items that require too much soap and water to clean? (2) the material deteriorated after a few uses. Now the fork and spoon look oxidized and are impossible to clean.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not bad, but texture is odd Bought this set as an impulse purchase while browsing an REI store. I bring my lunch to work most days and have either been using disposable plastic utensils, or (when I remember), bringing stainless steel ones from home. But I tended to forget those, and also kept worrying about accidentally throwing them out. So I bought this set to have something to keep at work, that I wouldn't worry too much about losing. The carabiner is nice for keeping the 3 pieces together - however due to its shape / small size it's a bit of a challenge to get a utensil off of it for use. The texture is indeed strange - perhaps an unavoidable side effect of the anodization process? Fairly unpleasant actually, but you can learn to ignore it. The light weight is nice but wasn't the reason I bought it. Where that *is* helpful to me: I just ate a cup of yogurt. The spoon is standing in that cup, until I get a chance to wash it. With a steel spoon, a breeze would be enough to make that fall over because it's so top-heavy. With this set, it's a complete non-problem. I already knew not to put them in the dishwasher - I have a number of other aluminum utensils at home that can't go in the washer. I've ruined the finish on several of those. So this one gets hand-washed only. Since it "lives" at work, that's just fine anyway. On a camping trip as well, you wouldn't usually have access to a dishwasher! The knife doesn't look like it would hold up to a tough steak, but I won't be using it for that anyway. The one odd quibble that I don't think anyone else has mentioned: they don't nest. I mean, the fork and spoon nest reasonably well but the knife does not fit flat against either the front or the back of the fork/spoon assembly. That might be fixed with slight bends in the fork/spoon angle, or handle, or something. It's kind of a jarring omission, because as a result, the set doesn't make a very compact "package" and takes up more room than it ought especially if you've got all 3 on the carabiner. Again, for an office user like me it's not a major issue, but for a camper it might be.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Yes, at first texture is a bit strange. However, after using and washing a few times with a standard 'green scrubbie' they have gotten smoother. This gave me the idea to use an SOS pad on them. Much smoother after that and still anodized. I am considering continuing the SOS pad treatment. Maybe down to bear metal. The 7075 aluminium alloy should do fine rust/tarnish wise even if down to bear metal. Maybe my standards are just low. Before this, I was using a fold up knife, fork, spoon, and can-opener combo. It worked OK. In my head I considered all the crevices difficult to clean and depending on the placement of the utensil they would fold back up on me when pressure was applied. Folding may be neat, but it really doesn't take up any less space. Plus the stainless steel makes it much heavier. I treat these like I treat my cast iron pans. Use and abuse them - they only get better with time. Price point, ease cleaning, the utility and weight...I don't really think they can be beat.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Quality Utensils So this is a pretty decent set of utensils. They are very light, and are real full size eating tools. I haven't taken them out camping yet so I can't really speak to their durability. As far as some people have commented regarding a weird texture, I can kinda see what they are saying, but it doesn't bother me in the least. Nice little carabiner and built in hex tools. Will say it's a little annoying that they don't nest, even just putting them in my bag to go to work. If you really need to cut out another 3/4oz get a titanium spork, otherwise this is a nice set.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for eating My wife got me this set as a stocking stuffer at Christmas. I have been using these both in my daily lunch (I bring my own lunch to work) and while camping. They are lightweight but strong. The best part, they are "real" sized, unlike those miniature plastic or camp utensils. I especially love the slightly larger and more rounded spoon. If I had a dig on them, it is that clipping to and detaching from the carabiner is difficult. I just keep the 'biner on the knife and leave everything loose. I have learned to love the texture - has an outdoorsy feel to it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for Car Camping I like that the fork and spoon are substantial enough like household flatware. However, it would be nice if the knife had deeper/aggressive serrations to make cutting meat (i.e. cooked steak) easier. These are more expensive than the other offerings in plastic, but being metal, they should be more solid and able to take more abuse. The 3mm, 4mm, 5mm hex heads and carabiner are a nice touch!

I loved this set. It's so much better than plastic, and it is lightweight. However, I lost the spoon! How can I purchase just a replacement spoon?

What are the weights for the individual utensils? Particularly interested in the knife weight.

Asked by: mbot
The knife weighs .42 ounces. The fork weighs .35 ounces. The spoon weighs .53 ounces.
