Seriously...Best. Spork. Ever.

Seriously...Best. Spork. Ever.

OK...sometimes I'm weird when I climb solo...let's get past it.
The reason I'm posting this photo is because it shows this spork how mine usually is...bent.
I have bent and rebent and unrebent this thing probably over 1000 times during the span of 3 (4?) years on 4 continents and in 7 ranges both prior to and after cramming/curling it into a radius small enough to fit in multiple pots/cups of various sizes and eating delicious-at-the-time warm slop out of a bag.
Why is this at all interesting?
I thought I lost it in the Tetons, so when I rotated back to LA, I went to Return Every Item to buy a new one. They didn't have one. So I bought a Sea To Summit one that came with a cute little 'biner. When I got home, I opened it, bent it, and broke it in half. After swearing, I decided it wouldn't be cool to return it, so I forgot about it. The next day I found my SnowPeak Titanium spork in my spoon drawer where I never keep it. I guess I put it in there.
I'm sort of stupid from altitude-induced brain-cell loss...
Needless to say, I was markedly stoked, and have since continued my happy relationship with my bendable titanium spork. I'm not slamming Sea To Summit...they make great stuff that I love and use...but their aluminium spork doesn't bend. It breaks. I should have realized the inherent tensile differences between aluminium and titanium prior to buying it but we've already established I'm stupid.
Plus now I have a sweet little spork biner (caution: not for climbing).
Anyway...that was a long review for a spork.
But it's a really good spork.

Update:

I can add a continent, 2 countries and a range, now.
'Thing bends in the French AND Swiss Alps, too!

Amazing piece of kit...buy one.

I love how both of our spork reviews wax poetic on this most masterful of sporks, and I'm not the only weirdo out there!

Dude and weird...we both named it the same thing...spooky.
