Yep, lose that grub screw and you'll have the shortest spoon on the trail, nice enough though
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.
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 - price is another matter .
Nick a plastic spoon from Mcdonalds and suck your sleeve.
22 quid saved.
Then I'd have to wash my hands before eating
I don't frequent McDonalds unless I need "a comfort" break
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
REI long handled spoon; been using these for years - excellent.
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.
Fingers - Been using them for years
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!
I forgot an implement for work noodles the other week, so been using chopsticks made from field maple twigs for a while...
I’ve been using toothpicks for years
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.
Only take full K/F/S (Ti) when bothying and I know a fry-up is on the menu .
All this metal & plastic! Am I the only one who uses wooden spoons?
nice guys finish last
A new shelter.......when i have spare money.......sigh
A ME classic 500 for when my 750 is too warm (which is not often ) 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...
* Blackadder The Third
all of the above ;-)
but seriously, am going to save up for a specific shelter I have in mind which is mucho moolah
