Robert Van Putten asked, "Dale, I don’t know how a feller could manage with a short and possibly even folding eating utensils. How the devil do you dig out and spread peanut butter from a jar in freezing weather with such a flimsy, short tool?"
The folding Ti spoon isn't particularly flimsy and my goal was to have something that would fit in a 450ml mug along with a windscreen and Esbit wing stove. I don't carry jars of peanut butter, so shoveling oatmeal, pasta and soup are the most rigorous tasks I demand of it. It is far stronger than the Light My Fire plastic spoon shown and would hold its own with or better the Lexan one, but I haven't done a spoon destruction test :)
For tough and universal use, I would go with a simple stamped stainless steel spoon of tablespoon size. A 60 second search in the spoon bin at Goodwill would come up with a handful at $0.29 each.
