A foldable steel spoon-fork combination, this kind of "sporks" are still used today in the Finnish armed forces. Originally used in the Imperial German army, this kind of utensil has some history behind it.
Swivel the thing open and you have a spoon on one end, a fork on the other and good handle for either one. Fold it and you've got a handy little package, easily and safely carried in your pocket. The main thing about steel spork is the fact that it will not break without tremendous effort.
Made of stainless steel. Weight about 80 grams. 23 cm long when opened, 15 cm when closed.
Oh, and it does wiggle a bit when folded open, and it will only get worse with time. This is an inherent feature with this design, our own army issue sporks do the same. It's like chopsticks; learn how to use it.
Made by Mil-Tec.
Let's face it: Mil-Tec isn't known for high quality stuff. However this spork is actually pretty damn good, and that's because it's simple and made of relatively thick steel. Won't break when you pound the block of icy porridge on a frosty morning. Try that with a plastic spork. Hell, even with the titanium one you'll probably have some doubts. I'll gladly forgive the 80 gram weight for the durability.
And the thing is CHEAP too.

All in all, a worthwhile piece of gear that resides in my stainless steel Swedish mess kit, and another one is in my aluminum Swedish mess kit too!
