    Knowing what a total UL geek/nerd I am, my girlfriend saved this little folding spoon from a fast food meal she bought for her son awhile ago. She had thrown it in the trash but as an after thought she pulled it out and saved it for me. She doesn’t remember which one now but we’re working on it. 1.69 gm/0.060 oz , 4.2″ long. We laughed long and hard at how pleased and amazed I was with it, one of the highlights of our first weekend camping together and her first ever!folded spoon

    Not the most durable and practical for sure, but cute as hell!

    The image is showing as broken for me. I’d sure like to see it.

    Weird! Several pictures I posted, and a post from David Thomas and my reply, disappeared from this thread overnight. Re-posting the pictures.

    I have seen those spoons in a tuna packet. I personally wish they wouldn’t include those as they are yet another thing to fill up our landfills.

    I have a pile of those tuna spoons, unopened and scissored off the main pouch..lol. Does this mean I am a hoarder?

    I can tell just by looking at that spoon that two of those would make a good sounding pair of spoons for your tyvek jug band.

    @sbhikes: I’ll give it a try if you will accompany me on an old time mandolin and/or fiddle!

    Nah!  You’ll have to pry my Maple Leaf Ti folding spoon from my cold dead hands.

    Sustainability aside, they break. UL is only good if it works. GSI, MSR and others make plastic folding utensils and they break too, at greater expense!

    Just to be clear, I’m not seriously considering using this spoon except for humor among my fellow gram weanies.

    Good to know. It would take an hour to eat a mug of soup with that :)
