Rating: rated 4.5 of 5 stars
Price Paid: $2-3

It's not a spork, it's a FOON!

Great cheap little piece of gear. The tines aren't too stabby so it's safe for freezer bag cooking. Seems to be unbreakable. I tried stomping on one with my size 15s and it survived.

Not sure what the little clip is for, it's very small and I haven't been able to find anything it can clip to, maybe a small piece of paracord or something like that.

Bottom line is it takes food from one place and puts it in your mouth, and it does it cheap and light.

Rating: rated 5 of 5 stars

Very lightweight, and strong; it is lighter or similar in weight to many titanium alternatives... and much cheaper in price too!

Works wonderfully as a spoon/fork. It does not conduct heat through the material, so you can pick up one end of the utensil while the spork end is sitting in hot liquids or foods.

Excellent for dehydrated food bags. It picks up goopy meals very well, and has enough stabbing power to pick up soft hunks of meat and veggies.

The material is easy to clean and wash with minimal water use. The built-in hook allows you to attach it to the outside of your pack so it can air dry, or elsewhere so it does not get lost.
