Sustainable Tactics: These thing's are garbage, a disposable dollar tree spoon is more durable by far.
thrashTele: I think its fine. If they made it thicker and longer it would be better. But for what it costs, its kinda worth it, I prefer the bpa.
SleepingOnSundays: im getting a light my fire meal kit
Neils Dahlberg: Think chopsticks will work better
AninOnin: Alright, I don't actually use these to go camping. I live in dorms for right now (I'm a first-year college student) and these things are really awesome. I have two, and I use them for everything from making tea, to eating ice cream, to eating noodles, to mixing chocolate milk... As long as you're careful with them, they won't break, and they're really easy to clean.
snowybaz: my honest opinion on these sporky things are that they are rubbish. i bought three and all have broken across the middle. they are too short to eat from a camping mug without getting your hands messy and youre definately going to get your hands covered in food if youre alternating between the fork end and the spoon end. when youre hiking with limited access to water you dont want to be wasting it cleaning your hands everytime you use one of these things.
AlSwegen: I had the same problem.... I hate being stuck on the trail for hours only to find that my spork is no match for the tub of rock-hard Dreyers in my backpack..... fail. Next time I buy icecream I will ask for a proper titanium spoon so as not to be disappointed.
billzngillz: Ice cream will nit break the spoon.
xXxFB4LxXx: multi-food apparatus
Josh Karabel: PRIMUS FOLDING SPORK, ONLY £1.70 @ ' EMS ' = MORE COMPACT!
LIGHT MY FIRE IS ALSO A GREAT PIECE OF KIT
Cre8tive00: I paid $3 dollars at Sport Chalet in store! Just a few days ago.
Rasenkrieger: Are you referring to Titanium as Tritan? Titanium is a metal and ny definition free from BPA etc. what you find in the plastic Spork
Other than that , fine!!
Olle Jansson: just for fun! these are made in my hometown Västervik, Sweden, just say'n! :)
Ryan draugr: i think ive seen these jokers in titanium?
scurrell: i am on the weird side of youtube....
CragScrambler: Plastic ones are pretty strong enough tbh, beside a 4 pack costs like £4
PEEKProductionsTOR: it a good item - but easily breakable.. I recc the Light My Fire Titanium.. perfect!
thekapow: the fact that the dont tell you is that when it gets cold (not eating ice cream), but laying in the pack for some time.. it will break with almost no force applied.. get the titanium one
MrQuackism: I'm having my dinner with spork now. :) Just got it today.
MrWoodywoodward27: if your afraid of it breaking eating ice cream etc... watch the light my fire spork vs. forklift video. it never broke or bent, even a semi truck ran over it too. un-breakable.
flipnotize211: With mines 3 of 4 broke
Gary Thaller: I chuckled when I saw a review of a spork on youtube. But it's a really good review. Thanks.
I have one of these and it works fine. But I don't eat ice cream with it. I wouldn't cut meat with it either as I'm afraid the fork might break. But for its purpose, it's fine. Mine was only $1.99.
psilokan: Took one of these on an 8 day solo canoe trip. Despite being brand new it was broken by day 3, snapped while I was wiping it clean. For the next 5 days I ate with a little nubbed fork and spoon. Wasn't thrilled in the slightest. It may have only been $2.50 CDN but it's crap.
p52ntwrk: big piece of junk TOTALLY..... you all know this...
Rishal Bipraj: that is not a spork.
NGMonocrom: I've got medium-sized hands, and this spork is definitely uncomfortable to hold. Also, +1 on the thin and far too flexible nature of these sporks. The times on the fork version break off far too easily. You shouldn't have to baby your eating utensil when you're hungry as Hell.
For those who like the basic design, do yourselves a favor; spend the extra on the Ti version.
manhattenhero: you could also just eat soft icecream with it like vanilla Soft serve. then it wont break! after all a great review! i would prefer the plastic one on account that is less heavy and the airplane things.
Wutangspam: Like you , I use my two Light My Fire Sporks for cooking etc etc. Thus far, in general, everyday use..................2 have snapped in the same place! Granted ,my friend got them cheap at Bangkok airport so I went to BCF and got a yellow one. Will see how it goes. Not impressed so far wih the 2 breakages. Maybe I got crazily unlucky and got two defective ones. As I say. Both broke in exactly the same place. See what happens with the yellow one.
JimmyGunXD556: Let me know if anyone finds a mfg. that makes a fork and spoon that clip together making them seperate to use, yet clip together for storage.
greensmoothieboy: Mine broke in my bag.
ripstiksick: Iv used those before and I ate ice cream with it it shouldn't break those things are impossible to break
shield121: omg i hate when i'm using a plastic knife and it breaks!!!
furiousajp: Now I can have four spikes pointed at me when I eat gumbo.
MonGo WonGo: Probably the best spork vid ever. Thanks for your review!
KIFQHESE: Sir, I must admit you did a reasonable review of somethig really ordinary. I was expecting a joke or something even lighter. However, I can't agree with that you need utensils for eating. You can almost everywhere take two sticks and eat things more or less comfortably with it, just like half of the world does. No ice cream again.
Gothtecdotcom: I'll stick to my fisher price 1980s spoke I found in a charity shop 10 years ago!!!
Gothtecdotcom: trust me, your camping in the wild and the local farm is a dairy... not only free milk buut many now go into icecream......... hhhhmmm yum!!!!
Mraussieadventurer: they do make bigger ones
westernhunter38: Good review of the Light My Fire Spork. It's a good product, but like everything else it does have it's limitations. I think the main thing people need to realize about this product is that it's mainly intended for backpacking and backcountry eating, to be used with the types of food that backpackers would be carrying - mainly hearty stews, soups, dehydraded meals, MREs, etc. Not really meant for eating tough heavy foods, or things like ice cream. It performs for what it was intended for.
ChandlerStudios: it is a spa-fork-i-knife. (spaforkanife)
offyam: a spork is a combination of a fork and a spoon. Therefore it is a spork - nife.
offyam: haha, meatloaf! So true. I just saw a survival recommendation video about that same spork just before this. I saw the length of the serrated edge and i doubt anyone, ANYONE would use that for anything EVER! They could put a metal spine in it to make it stronger, but also making it longer as you said would be ideal.
Rowan369: you can get a longer version 'extra medium'
johnmonk66: I don't like these either, the knife edge is a waste of time because you have to carry two of them, one to hold the food, one to cut. Used titanium cutlery can be found on ebay and it is worth the money because they last forever. The only reason I have one of these is because it came free with some titanium gear
DrunknShooter: They do make a longer one thats better for keeping your hands clean. It's also better for eating from a deeper pot or one of those freeze dried food bags. I've never tried to eat ice cream with one but I have managed to break 2 of them so far and I'm glad to see they are offering them in Ti now. I wish they would leave the knife part off because I think it's worthless for the reasons you mentioned. It can also cut your mouth if your a clumsy eater which I can be.
drelicharcz: I've always thought of buying a spork+knife, and after watching this i will!
FixedByDoc: I call them SPORF's. but hey. So I microwave my ice cream so it works just fine for me. I was very interested to see how you were going to fill 6:30 min. on this but very well done. SPORF it up yum yum.
jespir007: I love these things.
kewldudesweet: yeah i heard you can eat with those things too...
