Actually, after many years of testing various utensils on long summer cycle tours I have to say that the titanium version of the original Light My Fire spork is IMHO a useful and usable piece of kit. Unlike the plastic versions, the "knife" edge can just cope with cutting open apples and slicing cheese, whilst the spoon can be used as both a spoon and to spread butter, marmite etc on bread. It also can be used as a cooking utensil as it doesn't melt if you leave it in the frying pan by accident. As it is made of titanium it is very durable, light and much harder to break by accident.

Admittedly a titanium spork is rather more expensive than its plastic siblings - a classic example of you get what you pay for.

The same goes for buying a cheap multi-functional printer made by a gouging multi-national corporation - you get what you pay for.
