    I have one of these. There's no reason you should lose the screw; it never needs to be removed, just loosened. Doing that while wearing thick gloves might be awkward. It is exactly the same length as the Optimus foldable long spoon and about a gram heavier but has a slightly larger bowl (useful if you forget your stove @cathyjc :)) and less prone to collapsing while stirring your fd meal.

    @WilliamC :biggrin:

    I have the same Optimus long folding spoon - reaches the botton of packets and folds to fit inside my pot :).
    The Snow Peak looks nice and a bigger bowl would be :thumbsup: - price is another matter :wideyed:.

    My plastic spork actually broke (okay a tooth broke but still) so might take a metal implement next time.

    As a family, we've had 4 light my fire plastic sporks. They all snapped in 2 after a year or 3 of sporadic use. Not much by me - having an implement for a handle just irrationally offends.

    I really like the expedition food freebie orange long handled spoon. Ti ones don’t have any advantage except retail therapy as far as I can see.

    I've got a boxed GITD LMF spork squirrelled away somewhere, I won't use it because I know it will break, the ti version is a better user.

    I just use a tablespoon sized plastic jobby from Mountain Trails now

    LMF plastic sporks are pretty pants, no point in taking something with you if it may fail as when it does, sods law says it will be halfway through the first meal if the trip.

    Personally I like the long Toaks Ti spoons.

    Ditto re plastic Sporks. They can break. I keep a couple in the car for impromptu chippy visits etc. The Ti spoon I've moved onto doesn't feel as nice, but has at least confirmed to me that the fork bit was surplus to requirements. There's always the general purpose knife if something really needs skewering. Or a tent pin if a skewer's needed for BBQing!

    Maybe overkill, but I take a Ti knife, fork and spoon from Alpkit. I tend to cook real food, so having all 3 is handy.

    A ME classic 500 for when my 750 is too warm (which is not often :sorry: :D) but I guess my old alpkit PD will have to do.

    What are you after Dave? Theres stacks of decent shelters on Aliexpress for really low prices...

    ...unless you're as poor as a church mouse, that's just had an enormous tax bill on the very day his wife ran off with another mouse, taking all the cheese*...

    or you've spent all your money on bikes...
