[simage=124,288,n,left,]A while back, I noticed that there was a fledgling industry emerging amongst camping enthusiasts for lightweight, durable titanium equipment. One of the products that caught my eye was Snow Peak’s Titanium Spork, which weighs in at almost nothing (.1 oz), yet seems to be at least as strong as any conventional metal utensil, if not stronger. Certainly, the spork is more rigid and inflexible than standard metal cutlery, and has up til now resisted any attempt I have made to bend or break it with my hands.
If you’re an avid hiker or climber, you’ve probably already seen the value of this spork. At a weight that comes in slightly under that of a single plastic spork, which can be no match for the banging and squishing that goes on in a backpack on a long hike, the Snow Peak’s spork can trim weight off your pack, and ensure that you won’t be literally stuffing that delicious rehydrated slop into your face after your plastic crap breaks.
I’d like to thank Snow Peak for sending me a free spork, and to apologize for taking 2 1/2 years to write this review of it.
