This may be the last utensil you’ll ever need. Okay, that might be an overstatement if this is the only thing you have and you’re trying to eat a porterhouse. If you happen to carry a knife as an EDC (everyday carry), then you’re set on all eating fronts. In the ultralight age of weight saving, the Sea to Summit Titanium Folding Spork doesn’t cut any corners on quality or versatility.
Weighing at 17 grams (0.6 oz), the Sea to Summit Titanium Folding Spork weighs less then a standard toothbrush. Due to its folding feature, the spork easily fits inside of a stove pot or any small pocket. I like to keep my in the burner carry bag of my JetBoil MiniMo, which stores nicely within the pot. Due to their length, I can’t do that with a normal sized camping fork, spoon, knife, or spork. Like many times in the past, keeping this with my stove now prevents me from forgetting a utensil. No more eating directly from the bag or pot again.
If you are a world traveler or an ultralight junkie, this spork is too convenient not to have as an essential piece of kit. For the soldier, never again will you have to use the “super high quality” plastic utensils that come with an MRE. The Sea to Summit Titanium Folding Spork also comes with a small attachment carabiner, so you can clip the spork to just about anything and forget about misplacing it.
The sliding bar easily locks the folding handle into place and won’t collapse on you when digging through those thick meals. The spork portion is nice and deep and works well with even soup. On the downside, when full extended, the overall length is quite short and makes eating out of dehydrated or freeze dried bag a bit messy. Overall, if you are looking for a superlight utensil option to take with you anywhere, the Sea to Summit Titanium Folding Spork could be your new go-to. For a reasonable price of $16.95, you can purchase the spork here.
