My Favorite Utensils
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I've never been a fan of plastic and I wanted something easy to carry, clean and keep track of. I got my first set after my first year in the middle east. I used it for my next three subsequent tours. It fits easy in a shirt or pants cargo pocket. I would probably prefer a lightly serrated edge on the knife blade. The spoon is generous for soup or cereal. The handles are a little thin but they do the job. I've got several different types of field utensils, these are the best overall.

I've enjoyed this 3 piece set for a number of years. The velcro case is slick. But if you looking for Titanium because you're counting ounces, reassess. I ended up ditching the fork and knife and now just use the spoon. Chances are you have another knife with you on the adventure.
Amazing silverware... titaniumware. These babies are awesome for a few reasons. First of all, I was not all about getting titanium because I don't really like the feel of it, especially the brushed/powered stuff. I checked out a few different kinds and ended up going with this snow peak brand. The utensils are very smooth feeling and I have been using them at home just to try them out before they experience the great outdoors. The knife seems really dull, but it still works.
Good but could be better
These seem to be the standard titanium cutlery set for the price. A few things I didn't care for: The eating surfaces are unpolished. I have a titanium spork I don't care for for the same reason. Rather than send it back, I buffed it out. Half an hour on a buffer and I got a decent smooth surface. It's not a mirror finish but reasonable. It's now silver looking like in the product picture and not that dull titanium brown finish that holds finger prints and smudges all over. But to get a mirror finish, I'd have to take down the rough surface with varnish sand paper first and then buff it. Too much work. And second, the handles are too narrow and don't seem the most comfortable. I have small hands but think they should be wider. But this is only for backpacking and not for everyday use. I think the Primus set is probably better with polished eating surfaces and wider handles but no case.
Peak of Perfection
Snow Peak Titanium Silverware
I Have had 4 sets of this Silverware, every one i show it to Loves it !
I plan to replace my house Silverware with it !
Weighing in at 1.8 oz and the comfort makes them brilliant and easy to pack.
And don't forget the lifetime Manufacturer Warranty.
A Must buy, well worth the money !
Lightweight, need i say more?
1 Fork 1 Spoon 1 knife, if you need more stay at home or go caveman style, most people are born with built in flatware, 8 fingers and 2 thumbs.
I bought this set for my wife for use on the trail and in her office. She is a HUGE fan both in the wild and in her cubicle.
Not only has it eliminated the need to purchase plastic cutlery, it has sparked many a conversation with her coworkers!
A great buy - both rugged and lightweight - the best of both worlds!
Class in the woods...
Admittedly, I own almost all of the Snow Peak Titanium cookware, but after alot of research and studying everyones' reviews, I felt it was the way to go. My decision hasn't let me down yet. The utensil set is completely awesome. Not alot to add above the other reviews other than the set is virtually rustproof and I think maybe it adds a little class to your wilderness adventures.
Snow Peak Titanium Silverware Set
This is a great silverware set. There lightweight and it comes with a nice case to keep them in. The case also helps keep them from damaging anything in your pack.
There are two reasons to buy this Snow Peak titanium set over the more reasonably priced competition: 1) the case and 2) the knife. The kit is held together by a nylon case, rather than a clip, and while this case adds to the weight it also protects items in your pack from getting scratched and skewered by your cutlery. Also, the knife is not serrated so it won't scratch up your plates and cookware so badly, but it still cuts well. I wish the bowl of the spoon was a little bit deeper to hold more soup, but other than that this set is perfect.
nice to have
We got two sets for camping. The pieces are sturdier and safer to cook with than the compostable utensils that we used to bring along. The knives cut through steak without a problem. The nylon sleeves are neat and functional, but I've docked a star because we received ugly colors.
professional eating gear
good size, no weight, good shape on uts also..well worth the $
It's the little things that bring comfort
I sent a set to my wife who's currently deployed to OIF and she loves it. Trust me, it gets really old eating in the field and/or chow hall with cheap plastic crap (she's Navy deployed with an Army unit, I'm Marine Corps). And for all the gram-counting uber-light weenies: suck it up and enjoy the "civilized" feeling of eating with normal utensils. Promise we won't tell anyone your pack weighs an extra 1.8 oz, and you're smoking crack if you think you'll even notice the difference. I can still get by with just a trusty Ti/Lexan spoon or spork when hiking, but c'mon... this ridiculously light and sturdy set can make almost any backcountry meal seem like you're eating at the dinner table instead of out of your lap.
Each utensil works very well, a lot better than the plastic trash they put out in the company cafeteria! Go Green - use the same utensils at work and in the Back Country! Avoid piling plastic trash in the landfills!

I want to bring my own utensils to the cafeteria. I am tired of using, then throwing away, the plastic fork in it's plastic wrapper!
Is this the best set to bring with me to the cafeteria at work?
These would be great, but do you really need pricey ultralight titanium utensils just for going to work? maybe if your job were at the LeConte Lodge, then you would need them.
No, I have an answer for zikol88! Working at LeConte Lodge I had first hand experience with washing all the (tons) of utensils that are for use up there, so please find better knowledge of what you are talking about!
I carry mine with me every were.
Lower your carbon foot print and enjoy a comfortable flatware set to boot.
For eating i use Lexan fork and spoon to don't scratch Teflon coating. This one I carry in my car when I am on a road trip and as extra silverware for my girlfriend. It is just the right size, lightweight, and the smart pouch keeps it together
Cool product, very light and compact. Worth the money!
Bought these because I was tired of having to use a plastic spoon/fork in the field. This beats plastic hands down, very light and compact.
The knife could be sharper but the spoon and fork are good tools!
Recommend this product for field lunch and supper.
I love titanium
I love this set. The nylon pouch is heavier than the pieces together! Plus, you can even cut stuff with the knife. A great buy for light and fast junkies.
