Rating: 5 / 5

I already had a Light My Fire plastic spork which worked perfectly well, weighed next to nothing, cost a couple of quid but kept getting lost in my food/cooking bag. When I was looking to 'streamline' my cooking set I was shown the Optimus Folding Ti Spork. It weighed a wee bit more, cost four times as much but it's folding style meant I could fit it inside my MSR Titan Kettle along with my Crux stove, gas cannister and a firesteel. It's very well finished with a polished eating surface and works great. It actually gets a 4.9 out of 5 and only misses out on a 5 due to my ability to over-power the locking mechanism when sqeezing a tea/coffee bag on the side of the mug. Maybe if I didn't sqeeze so hard it wouldn't be an issue!
