Ill be doing this in English from now on. For two reasons.
Number one being that more people will be able to understand and thereby make use of whatever nonsense i decide to write about.
Number two is the fact that i figured, well cant exactly hurt my English vocabulary to write more or less longer texts every now and then.
Well here goes.
My first piece of cutlery for outdoor use was a spork. A light my fire spork. I used that for about 4-5 outings. Then i tried scraping off some peanut butter against a log. It broke. A nice little crack from the tip of the spoon and in a half circle down to the bottom of the spoon. I did not use excessive force for the whole scraping business, let me assure you. It was quite the gentle touch, as if the log was a new born baby. Not that i would scrape peanut butter on a baby of course. That would be rude.
Anywhooo... I did take a picture of the victim just after the incident, but im afraid i seem to have misplaced the photo. So you will just have to take my word for it.
Luckily i had just before this incident been given as a present, a FOLDABLE spork. So i just switched over to that one. For about 1 outing.
Then the folding-lock-mechanism gave up.

I continued using the spork anyway, given its construction it only folds itself together when using the fork, not the spoon-end. But just to be clear it did make me just a itsy bitsy annoyed when trying to use the fork.
My last outing (after about 4 or so with the "fold-myself-together-during-your-meal-to-piss-you-off-spork") i said to myself: ENOUGH!
So i decided to get myself some new cutlery. And this time i decided to skip the plastic.

These pieces of cutlery were not news to me, but they have been a little over the top price-wise for me. (About 60kr a piece, which is like $8). Compared to a spork that goes for around 20kr ($3).
As noted, enough is enough. So i went for it.
The weight "penalty" is a stunning 7 grams. So no it is not an issue, i am no madman.
First impression, they seem pretty rigid and yeah well. They sure are light weight for metal cutlery. Hopefully i wont regret the 120kr ($16).
Outdoor and out!
