    Is it wrong that I desire a Rab Kinder smock purely based on the slightly retro label?

    Where there's a will, there's a way. :)

    Good fun in camp and they'd have loads of uses round the home and work.

    Hmmmmnnn........I wonder if this thread should have been more accurately called 'Justify your unjustifiable purchases'. :D

    I had one of the original versions of these. It's very short and made me look like Mr Blobby.

    And I've just gone and shelled out £1.58 (inc delivery) on an AliExpress Ti folding spoon.

    Also want!
    That said, don't you do those rather cute wooden (6.3g) spoons on your site Paul? I'd been meaning to ask, are they OK for standard outdoor cooking purposes (porridge etc), or will that kind of heat damage their coating?

    Fine for cooking, lacquer is very tough

    impregnated in resin i cant see a problem. I guess if it gets chipped you might want to think twice :D

    I think if I had a c/f spork I would only use it for the purposes of lightening my published lighterpack list and never eat with it :biggrin:

    At least a titanium one will double up as an emergency tent peg.

    Sea to summit Polycarbonate spoon is the same weight and only 68p but nothing like so pretty :inlove:

    Suppose it depends on what you eat, I've had a few but only used the spoon end, the fork might be handy for things that require stabbing? The knife bit is pants
