Sadly, the Primus Trailspork was no Titan...it didn’t hold up. Even more disappointing was Primus Customer Service email response to my warranty request...”we don’t cover that...”
- Lightweight, 7 grams

Note: The first sentence of Primus's product description on its website is incorrect. This spork model does not fold.
The Primus Trailspork Tritan is a strong contender for the eating utensil “do all” category. The construction is robust...the girder style handle cutouts lighten it up but it doesn’t weaken the structure any. The cutouts resemble the pot cutouts on their Eta pots.
The “fork” portion works as good as any fork, even with short tines.
The “spoon” portion is where I, personally, see room for improvement. To me, the spoon cup is too deep and narrow, causing the sides to feel high when withdrawing the spork from your mouth. Which accentuates another problem.
On the right outside sidewall of the spoon, the outside lip is a beveled edge to mimic a knife or spatula and is rather straight...which with a shallower depth wouldn’t be an issue (but then the spoon might be ineffectively shallow). But I felt like that beveled edge is slicing my upper lip as I draw the spork out of my mouth. This sensation certainly slowed my eating down.
The aforementioned beveled edge worked effectively both as a knife cutting through soft items and also as a spatula when scraping the last remnants of fettuccini from the pot walls.
I liked using the Primus TrailSpork Tritan for stirring pot or pan contents without concern of it melting or deforming.
It is very apparent I am not an engineer, nor pretend to be. So take my thoughts with a grain of salt. The Primus TrailSpork Tritan is a good product and worth a look.
