Just grabbed a couple of these GSI Outdoors Titanium Kung Foons, half out of curiosity and half out of the need for a camping spork. Price wasn't all that much higher than the standard fork options, and the chopstick extension feels like a pretty solid idea for dehydrated food packs. Amazing overall quality with the spoon, chopsticks, and even the packaging.
Taking these down to Havasu Falls, AZ this coming week, hoping to edit this after some actual use.
Left off the 5th star due to the simple fact that any person not really needing/wanting a spork would have zero use for the chopsticks. Knife + stick = free chopsticks.
I'm sure that this looks like an unreasonable gadget to some people but I do like the multifunction aspect of having a longer spoon and a set of chopsticks in one device. I share the concern of others that the chopsticks might break but I have thought of removing the foam pad in the box and packing other small items that I take along there as well which would adequately protect them. Even if the chopsticks break they appear to be a standard size that could be replaced by store bought ones.
This is a neat spork/chopstick combination and the way they fit together is really cool. It comes in a really nice tin that makes this GREAT as a gift. However, it is a little heavy for lightweight backpacking. The spork weighs in at 0.8 ounces and the chopsticks at 0.5 for a total of 1.3 ounces. (This doesn't include the tin case). Plus, the chopsticks can sometimes move around a little when set inside the spork so, while ingenious, it is not perfect.
This is a multi-functional, lightweight utensil that has good length and reach for comfortably stirring boiling pots and reaching deep into dehydrated dinner packages. I love using the sticks alone for tortellini and noodles. Stores nicely because the chopsticks and spoon pull apart. My only worry would be that the chopsticks could potentially break under too much heavy weight in a stuffed backpack.
