Light My Fire Titanium Spork

Light My Fire Titanium Spork is a convenient utensil primarily designed for outdoor eating or eating on the go. The utensil is a spoon, fork and knife combined into one cool spork which has the scoop of a spoon on one end, tines of a fork on the other, and the edge of a small knife along one of the tines. As the name suggests, it is made from titanium and promises to be non-corrosive, non-allergic and non-magnetic. This tough little spoon cum fork cum knife is a hardcore outdoor enthusiast's best friend.

  • As opposed to its 0.36 ounce polycarbonate counterpart, the Light My Fire Titanium Spork weighs about 0.6 ounces (approximately 17 grams)
  • As it is not colorful or jazzy, you can even use the titanium spork around the household even with your other expensive cutlery

A little about spork - What is a spork?

A spork is a kitchen utensil that basically does the job of a spoon and a fork. The spork has a scoop just like a spoon and tines like that of a fork. The combination of the utility and design of a spoon and a fork results in the name Spork, or Foon.

Traditionally, the scoop and the tines of a spork are amalgamated at the same end of the utensil. However, many recent versions of sporks have the scoop and tine at two separate ends. A spork generally has two, three or four tines.
