User Review: Guyot Designs MicroBites
Price Paid: $3.95
I already own the standard sized version or this set, but for solo trips I thought this would be a better choice. I figured correctly.
Total weight (verified) is .78 oz, and for the number of functions provided in the set, there is nothing lighter on the market. The two pieces snap together and are safe to put in your pack without worry of damage from poking through or abrasions.
It is also easy to attach to your pack's exterior with a small caribiner. There is no extra weight of a case, no metallic clanking sound if it's on the outside of your pack.
As for functionality, the fork section of the fork works perfectly, and the spoon section is deeper dished than most others that I've tried.
The real beauty of this set is in the other piece: a knife that cuts most anything well, a spatula, a spreader, and a scraper all in one. This set can do it all...even the holes in the handle allow you to use as a wisk.
As a testament to its durability, I have used one of the larger versions of this set to move hot BBQ coals around for sustained amounts of time, and only burned one edge slightly...performance is unaffected and the carbon burning wiped off. Reportedly handles up to 450 deg F.
Nothing sticks to this surface, and it is the actually a carbon negative product--the most environmentally friendly camping product you can buy.
I have purchased many products for the outdoors over the years, and this one of the best designed and executed items I've ever seen. Absolutely recommended, and without peer...particularly for the price.
