    Default Titanium Spork

    Since most here are fond of titaniums, Do you guys also buy sporks in titanium? A spork is one thing but in TITANIUM? It's another reason to collect.

    I own 2 which are the Optimus titanium spork and a gold/yellow Vargo titanium spork.

    Most say the tines are short enough to not be able to eat noodles. I use mine when eating cup noodles the the tines are good enough. There is also enough space for the soup

    They are also lightweight and some has holes on the end so that it will be easy to carry when traveling/camping/backpacking anywhere.

    Post here your collections and please add pics if you have some

    Titanium chop sticks work much better for eating noodles than a spork...

    Ti fork here. Got a crazy good deal at REI on it-like $.80 or something on super clearance. I heat treated mine too.. Not that well but I did it. I put it in my lunch box almost every day.

    For those who carry their sporks with them, how or where do you place them? In a ziplock? on its own?

    I have a titanium sport, but I use my titanium spoons almost every day. Long handle, nice size, made for eating camping food from bags. I carry the sport in my briefcase and the spoons stay at home.

    Been EDCing a Brunton Ti folding spork for about 4 years now.
    It gets used most often when I go out to eat, along with my EDC folder for cutting things.
    The thia restaurant I eat at doesn't even bring silverwear to the table anymore since they know I have my own.
    Restaurant utensils are terrible...especially the knives.

    I imagine so... although I've never tried it. Just as easy to hand wash them.

    I have a LifeVenture titanium fork/spoon/knife combo set, plus a LifeVenture titanium spork added in just in case, carried in the nylon case they came in, which I use to eat lunch at work. I feel bad enough having to carry my food up from the cafe in a single-use styrofoam container; the least I can do is not throw away the utensils too.

    I have a Snow Peak titanium spork and the titanium mug that's sold with it all inside a condor water pouch.

    Neat little package that looks like this

    I'm waiting on mine, should be here very soon. I've already got a regular LMF Ti Spork. I use it every day. I'm really looking forward to Roger's take on it.

    Sporks are certainly cool and they can be pretty handy in the right situation but, I dunno, the word SPORK always makes me think of a certain Star Trek character, or perhaps his cousin.

    I've always preferred the designation FOON.......otherwise known as a RUNCIBLE SPOON. Of course, there's always the SPLAYD to consider. Then again, one might ponder the purchase of a SPIFE, (if you're not in need of a fork) or perhaps a SPORF, although I've yet to see one of those in titanium. Finally, if you think you may not be in need of spoon functionality you might consider a KNORK, also known as a KNOON.

    Totally dishwasher safe. The oxide layer that gives the colour is very thin so don't use Scotchbrite or any abrasive to clean them, if you do it's down to bare metal and colour lost.

    I've got 3 in the sea-to-summit titanium brand.

    One's a folder with a double wire handle and a locking lug, the other is a super long handle and another is shorter - for those close encounters.

    One lives in my Pelican / Kinchrome ripoff box, with my GPS, USB computer backup and K3 & its multitude of batteries and other crap eg Leatherman & bit kits and drivers, Byrd Knife, compass and others for a SHTF situation and the other two are on my BOB bag, which hang from a micro Ti biner - and yes it sounds something crazy as they clang together something chronic when the bag's on my back...

    I guess you cant have too many Ti sporks, it's just another collecting sickness lol.

    Much rather have a titanium spoon. If I put a Ti spork in my BOB, I'd always be worried it would poke holes in the fabric.
