    Thank you.
    I remembered stumbling over something similar once and finally got tired of the crushed matchboxes, so I made one:)

    When going minimalistic, I got fed up with having my eating utensil floating around in the pocket of the smock, so I made a kydex spork holder.
    Here my slightly wonky first try;

    Works just fine.

    Im considering refinining the design and market it as the T. S.N. S "Tactical Spork Neck Sheath." The Mantis knife fans will eat it up! (see what I did there:D) ;)

    toaks titanium 450, 750 and fry pan...i already washed and boiled water in that fry pan by the way...it doesn't look used like that from toaks :)

    the usual complaint about toaks is their loose fitting lids so that's why i've stayed away from them for a long time...i'm glad to see they finally fixed that issue as mine won't flip at all no matter how hard or where i tap them...i always wanted a bail on my titanium pots so now i can get rid of my mors pots and heavy cover cup :)

    opinel no. 8 garden knife...i wish it was carbon steel like my other no. 8 but for me this has a much better blade and handle shape so i'll tolerate the stainless for now.

    [​IMG]


    opinel no. 102...i think i found my grail paring knife - checks all the boxes for me including carbon steel :D

    [​IMG]


    compared to the victorinox stainless which i've used for years...i hate that it doesn't patina - i don't like knives that always look new.

    I didn't make it. I bought it. Off Etsy. It's lighter than what comes with the Trangia Mini and can be used with any number of alky stoves.

    https://www.etsy.com/listing/242741...2UkkAaywxxmsKd9CnsWZwRSAp0_d0ZSRoCPFEQAvD_BwE

    I may ditch the Trangia spirit burner and stand all together and get a WhiteBox stove.

    I don't carry a separate bowl and cooking pot. My pot is my bowl. I do carry a separate lidded cup (empty soup-on-the-go can) so I can drink coffee while using the pot on the stove for something else. I'm also replacing the Trangia mini pot with a Snow Peaks titanium bowl as a pot. It will handle 2 cups of water and the Trangia mini pot holder works fine with it. Time will tell if this is a permanent change or if I go back to using the Trangia mini aluminum pot.
