    I'm looking for a good spork to carry in my edc. (yes I do that) Leaning towards the CRKT Eat'n Tool. I'm really just looking for suggestions under $15. Thanks for the help.

    Depends on what you want to spend for one. American Kami makes one out of 6AL4V medical grade titianum, that has several other built in tools. Snow peak makes a ti spork that is very reasonable in comparison, My favorite is made by Sea to Summit I really like the folding version of that one.

    I cant see one for EDC I use the snowpeak for backpacking, but that is just cause its "cool". you would be better off with the lexan spoons sold in speciality stores (with or without the hard core practice of handle removal). Never got into chopstix either but then again I carry both a cup and bowl since i hate not drinking coffee with my oatmeal. On point, i see no problem with the SS eatntool.

    Except how pitifully small it is, looks like it would make eating a chore, if thats what you want. I would pick up one of the light my fire titanium ones for a few bucks more, it has a fully functional spoon, and a fork with a crude edge for soft cuts, and know where near the crazy price of a tipocolypse spork.

    Light my Fire, Snow Peak, REI...I personally don't see much difference in quality between them. Pick the one you like the looks of most. And for gear questions, there's a specific sub-forum that this thread will be moved to shortly.

    I have the Light My Fire Titanium Spork. Cost is within your range on a certain long river's website, though I think it was a gift. Works great in my EDC car kit. Big spoon side and decent fork side. Great for soups, or shoveling food when in a rush. I tend to eat quickly. I highly recommend it. I like that it is dual sided, as I find true sporks to have really crummy use when you need a fork and are horrible for soups. They really don't do anything very well.

    I like carrying a lexan spork for taste. The metal, especially ss, silver, and I believe ti (I have a ti one but I can't remember using it for soup), have a metal taste that my lips can feel. It's especially noticeable with soups, and food that requires your lips to clean the fork of food. Stick a metal spoon or fork in your mouth without food. Nasty right? I won't use metal silverware at home. Why should I use them in restaurants? As for chopsticks, maybe one day when I revisit Portland for the Shakespeare festival I'll move up to that level of douche bag at least temporary for the fun of it, but not now. The spoon doesn't allow you to shovel soup as fast as I'd like, but it's adequate.

    I like the Light My Fire Spork. A real spoon on one end and a real fork on the other. They make them in several colors of plastic and in titanium.

    I too like the Light My Fire Sporks. I have a Serving Spork, 5 normal PC sporks and a Titanium one. Bought Sporks for my nieces 2 Christmases ago and they love them. These days I work from home, but when I didn't, I carried one of my sporks in my work bag. Got 2 in my day pack and 2 in my 3 day kit. One of them is next to my computer. :) The full fork and spoon are why I like them so much. Also the fact that they come in a ton of colors.

    I vote for the REI folding ti spork. Not nuts about sporks, but this is the best one I've run into.

    Most sporks are too long for me to pack comfortably in my minimalist pack inside of a small pot so I cut part of the plastic handle off so it fits. Works OK for me.

    I have carried a eat'n tool on my day bag for a little over a year now. It's a excellent piece that work well to keep your face stuffed :) Little short in the handle and it doesn't have the cool factor of Ti but it has shown no rust and its smaller size IMO is a advantage.

    Forget the sprok and get a hobo knife. Both Case and Kabar still make them. You get a foork, knife and spoon in one small folder.

    I don't like sporks so I took a stamped steel fork and spoon, chopped the handles, and joined them with JB Weld. Full sized fork on one end, full sized spoon on the other end. Problem solved.
