Over the years, I have seen a lot of personal gear left at home when it was needed in the field. Flashlights and personal hygiene gear are usually 2 of the culprits missing in people’s backpacks. If I were to name one piece of personal gear that would top that list; It would be eating utensils. For some strange reason, people remember to bring food & plenty of it. But when it comes to forks & spoons, many have to rely on sharing or making a field expedient equivalent. I’m all in favor of practicing crafts & making field expedient tools but when it interferes or takes away from my mission at hand; it often becomes annoying and a waste of precious time.
I travel often and spend plenty of time in shady restaurants & airports in less than desirable locations. A few years back, I decided to address the issue and began carrying a titanium spork in my travel kit. They are lightweight, inexpensive and and non-toxic due to the titanium construction. Recently, I was sent a couple of The Smiling Tools Titanium Spork(s). My first impression was that this spork was much more durable than other sporks that I have used. It has these ridges along the side that prevents it from bending due to incidental contact. When I am in the field, my pack gets put through its paces. My dogs lay on it, I lean up against trees during water breaks with the pack on and lets not forget the elements that nature throws at us. Having quality, durable gear takes away the concerns of my gear becoming unserviceable due to normal operation in the field. There is enough for me to worry about; It’s nice to know that my gear holding up when I need it the most is not one of them.
A spork is a personal tool. What may work for me may not be comfortable for you. Luckily, there are a few great options to choose from and this The Smiling Tools Spork is one of them.
