I originally bought these out of curiosity, but I have learned to respect these utensils.
- Pack small
- Great length
- Small spoon bowl
- Bulky for chop sticks
I bought these utensils as a curiosity, but I have found a good home for them. Every time I have used them, I have found them more than adequate for utensils.
The bowl is small for a spoon, and the thickness of the chopsticks are very thick. The thickness of the chopsticks are throwing off my chopstick use, but with practice they will work fine.
The place were these shine is in packability. You can't find a longer set of utensils that will pack smaller.
I have a small Esbit cook pot that I like to carry as an all in one kit, but was not able to pack utensils in it due to the short size. This kit is the only one that fits in this cook pot. I can get everything in this photo inside of that cook pot and cook pot bag.
I don't need the excess length of this spork and knife for this pot, but it is the only thing I have that will fit in that pot. You can see that when extended, they are longer than a long Sea to Summit alloy spoon.
I am left handed and I thought the threads would unscrew when I was scraping with the fork or spreading with the knife, but they hold firm. (Yes, that is a left-handed LMF spork). The Human Gear Go Bite Duo is running in the lead for best all around set (darker blue).
