Rated 3 out of 5 by from Fragile but lightweight Purchased about a month ago, broke last weekend. I see others have had similar experiences breaking this product, however mine did because of my own fault. I had it in my hand when i went to adjust myself in my chair and caught the edge, snapped right into two separate halves. Luckily i had a fire going so i was able to take a hot coal and weld the two pieces back together, so it can be repaired in-field. Not pretty but just about as strong as it was originally. I would buy this again, infact i will later today. I could buy 3 and the weight would be less than he titanium version. Bonus: if it does break you still will have a fork and spoon, just with a more "Economically sized" handle.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Snapped in half! I bought one of these because a friend had one and I liked the serrated edge along the fork part- not a feature on your typical spork. Unfortunately, I was trying to cut a soft piece of banana bread (!), and the tool snapped in half. This tool is definitely not durable. I'd suggest it for car camping, but I'm not sure it would stand up to that, either. Also, the handle was a little short for my hand. I felt like I was always maneuvering around the end of the tool that I wasn't using. I wouldn't buy this again, especially now that I've read the reviews to know that I'm not alone with the breakage issue. Cute idea, poor execution.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Get what you pay for. Well I love the LMF spork for it's light weight,and price. Also the variety of bright colors make it very easy to tell whos is whos and find it when dropped in the dirt/creek/crevasse. They are not very durable however, easily broken especially in very cold conditions. Do NOT try and cook with one either, or even put it in anything hotter than you would put in your mouth. They will warp and/or melt. But it is what it is, and you get what you pay for. Simple light weight tool, for the occasional outdoorsperson.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Really, really poor product This thing is immensely crummy. Snapped into about 7 pieces the first backpacking trip with it. Not even just in half - it snapped into so many pieces that it was rendered completely useless. Fortunately, a friend had grabbed an extra throw-away plastic utensil of the fast food variety on our way to the trailhead, and it turned out to be way more durable than this thing, and it lasted the rest of the trip. On another trip, a friend had one and I warned him that it would snap. Sure enough, it snapped, and he ended up borrowing the titanium spork that I had to buy to replace this hunk of junk. Bad product. Spend a few more bucks and get a titanium spork that will last forever.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Breaks Easily I brought this fork on an overnight trip up Whitney and it broke the first night. (Thankfully my friends had extra utensils or else I would have eaten with my hands. Not that that'd be the end of the world.) In all fairness I did (accidentally) press on the middle of the fork somewhat hard when I was reaching for something else in my pack, but still. I expected it to be durable and it wasn't. I thought this was a cool spork when I bought it. And I still do. Really, it works just fine for eating. It's just not durable at all. For that reason I recommend against taking this backpacking.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from It is what it is I have had this spork for most of my hiking career and it's just...average. It's not particularly flimsy or anything (mine has never broken in 5 years of use), but it just has little problems. It's too short to get the food out of the bottom of a dehydrated backpacker meal without getting your hand covered in food, and the "knife" is useless. But for the price, it does make a good choice for someone who is just trying out backpacking.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Works fine until it breaks (it will) I use this product for backpacking trips, where I do not want the extra weight/bulk of a full flatware set. It works fine for what it is supposed to do, though it is not durable at all. I've probably snapped 3 of these in the last couple years, 2 of them just trying to clean them. That and the fork end can get a bit warped if you do any sort of cooking with it. Good thing they are fairly inexpensive. I will probably be switching to a Ti spork soon though. It is not much fun eating with a 1/2 length spoon or fork for half of a trip.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well made Perfect size. The knife doesn't really work too well, but I wasn't expecting that anyway. Ended up picking up a GSI plastic knife for $.75 to go with it, and I prefer that combo. You'd think having another utensil on the grip would mess with your dexterity or comfort, but it doesn't. Used this all throughout a 2 month backpacking trip, and the only problem was it snapped on me. It is plastic, though, and to be fair I was using it to slice some really hard cheese. Should've used a real knife; for the fork and spoon, however, this is the best I've found. And I can get it through TSA.
