    Just wondering what type you guys use.

    I have the standard Knife, Fork & Spoon set that clips together but find it hard holding a mess tin and trying to cut bacon or sausage up as you need 3 hands to do that.

    So I have been looking into sporks, but would be looking at the type that has a serrated edge on it.
    Most sporks are plastic ? Are they good enough or is it best to go SS or Titanium.
    So what do you use and would you recommend it.

    i use something similar to yours, and i agree, its a pain trying to hold eveything. i try and find a log most times to improvise as a table. never tried a spork though

    I use a spork most of the time. A cheap plastic one. Many people swear by the Ti ones though.

    My mum has just given me my grandads old KFS he used to have. I love it, it needs a clean up as its been in storage for about 50 years, quality bit of kit though.

    Once cleaned up that should be a handy little tool to carry Mark.
    I went into Field & Trek this morning and they were selling Karrimor Sporks at £1.49 each reduced from £2.99 so I bought one to try.
    If it works ok might treat myself to a titanium one if I can find myself a cheap one.

    If you are carrying a knife anyway, the only other piece of cutlery you really need is a spoon. Just nick one from the kitchen when the wife isn't looking:D

    All mine get nicked by family for cooking with. Grrr, i'm currently making a new one from Yew, i've told them its poisonous so they cant use it. Bwa hahahaaaaa. Yes, i know Yew is poisonous, but utensils and bowls are fine for eating off. Its by far the nicest coloured and grained wood in the UK imo

    I have used allsorts over the years,ranging from sticks to hand made ones and plastic to stainless steel ones.
    All I take now is a folding spork,mainly because it fits inside my cookset.
    I already have a knife and most of my meals when out tend to be edible with a spoon.
    Also I can fit a whole sausage in my mouth so don't always need to cut it up first.

    Talented man!

    Interestingly enough the word SPOON originates in Scandinavia as something like Spone which is a word also used for a wood shaving/chip ergo the origins of spoons were wooden shaving or chips used to eat with instead of fingers - so as Sapper says a lot of things can be used as a digging tool from chop sticks to pointy sticks ..............
