    Just got one in the post. Should it bend?

    The metal itself is non-magnetic and looks the right colour, but it’s slightly worrying me that it seems a bit bendy where the spoon bit ends and the fork bit starts.

    Titanium isn’t that rigid.

    I find that eating with a Ti spork makes the food come alive.

    Get Uri Geller to examine it.

    This?

    Ive got two and not noticed it bend.

    EDIT – What does this mean?

    spoon bit ends and the fork bit starts

    Its all one bit…

    Scotroutes, it’s only a 17C spork, not a 650b one.

    Just realised I’ve badly maligned Lifeventure… It should be “Light My Fire”

    I think the thread got bent in the post.

    The LMF Spork isn’t really a Spork – it’s a combination/double-ended spoon and fork like this

    seems like a good design if you want dinner all over your fingers.

    Leaving aside the spork vx. forkoon argument, I would like to thank scotroutes for the photo. It saves me putting up my own.

    Basically, the bit in the middle where the metal is not shiny is where I’m asking about. Should the spork bend there?

    in the fork and spoon plane – probably its not all that thick.

    the width will give it rigidity for cutting.

    Stop calling it a spork.

    What’s the point of a spork anyway? Except for maybe when going camping and that vital extra spoon could mean the difference between making your destination and dying of exhaustion.

    Ti that thin will be flexy. Let your noodles soak more before you try to eat them 🙂

    More to the point, what’s the point of a titanium spork forkoon sporf, when a plastic one works just as well for pretty much everything most people use one for. Then again so do a couple of bits of plastic cutlery available for free at every good motorway service station.

    I’ve edited the Wiki page
    A lightweight plastic sporf. This style is increasingly popular as a utensil for weight-conscious weirdos.

    No. 😉

    I’ve got quite a bit of Light My Fire stuff including several plastic sporks and one titanium one. The only issue I have with it is that it does get very hot, too hot to hold, when stirring stuff – which is why I like my Alpkit long handled spoon (‘lhoon’ I think they called it).

    Given househusband’s point I’d be editing my post from “just as well” to “better” if it wasn’t too late.

    No, titanium does have its place – it is better for some culinary applications as it is more rigid and I have melted a plastic spork by accident.

    And, as Scotroutes has already pointed out, it does make the food ‘come alive’. 8)

    Like I said, I got it because the lexan one I had snapped, so I needed a replacement. Titanium is awesome so was a natural choice.

    That said, if it makes food “come alive” I would suggest that you either get a lid for the pot and cook it for longer, or learn how to kill things properly and not just stun them.

    unless you’re French and like your steaks ‘badly injured’ rather than ‘medium rare’

    I have one of these and it brings my snap alive when I’m in the middle on nowhere. Mine doesn’t bend though.

    I have a Lifeventure one as above, and have never noticed any stiffness issues.

    Looks like a great way of eating food whilst simultaneously cutting your mouth to ribbons to me. And what the Frank use is a knife that’s on the same utensil as your fork, how’s that supposed to work?

    Weight weenies, first against the wall when the revolution comes I tell you.

    No idea why, but my kids will eat more or less anything if you give them a Spork to do it with.

    Must enjoy multiple gum injuries or something.

    Maybe my comments didn’t come across as sufficiently spork tongue-in-cheek…

    Did you manage to cut your tongue with a particularly sharp Sporf?

    just use chopsticks and be done with it.

    I don’t have a ‘sporf’ and I feel all empty and inadequate – I don’t know how I’ll cope next time in the wilderness.

    Yeah, a Spoon/fork combination, or SPORK.

    😆 doesn’t that belong to the epicurean school of ‘take off the horns and wipe its bum, I’ll eat it’?

    Plastic is brittle in cold temperatures – no laughing matter when you plastic spork snaps in Kettleton Byre at -15 degrees centigrade and you dinner is cooling faster than you can find a replacement.

    OP – mine has been bendy for years, go out on yer bike
