It's just a spoon and fork mated together. on 09/19/2013 18:51:21 MDT Print View

Someone needs to make this in a long handled version. I want one of these:

With a fork on the other end! Is that so much to ask for? The cashier at REI thought it was a good idea too! ;^)

I use an MSR titanium spoon. Long handle hits the bottom of the PB jar just fine, and can't get lost under the surface when cooking in or eating from my Titan kettle. Light enough, easy to clean, not poke-y. It's my go-to utensil at home and outside.

from the drawer on 09/19/2013 19:46:06 MDT Print View

Weigh one of those spoons from your drawer before you toss that idea. You might be pleasantly surprised. I did recently and found it 0.1 oz lighter than my MSR Ti spoon with weight-reduction holes and the pokey tool end.

I vote lexan spoons on 09/24/2013 01:59:01 MDT Print View

This thread is hilarious, so I must take part!

The lexan soup spoon that I use as my sole eating utensil (beside my hands!) weighs 11 grams

A stainless steel tablespoon from my kitchen set weighs in at 53 grams.

That's a difference of 1.5 ounces that I don't need to carry, so I don't. With that said, I have used random kitchen spoons before on backpacking trips and I somehow survived.

Those thin cafeteria soup spoons would probably be a lot lighter than your standard kitchen set, so if you really want a lightweight metal spoon but don't want spend the money on a titanium one, you could always... um... acquire one of those cafeteria style spoons from a local food establishment.
