It doesn’t matter where I go or for how long, my trusty Light my Fire spork comes with me.
Made from durable, heat resistant plastic, it’s a spoon, a fork and a knife (of sorts – there’s a serrated edge on one of the fork tines) in one. It’s perfect for picnics, eating street food and other food on the run. You can save the environment one piece of disposable cutlery at a time. You can also get ones made of titanium for extra long lasting durability.
And unlike a pocket knife, you can pack it in your hand luggage. You also have an excuse to sing The Doors when you’re eating.
On longer trips, I take along a Sea to Summit folding bowl too so I can eat my own bowl of muesli for breakfast. It’s pretty awesome too. It has a solid base bottom which can double as a chopping board and measurement markers on the inside of the bowl, handy for cooking. It folds down flat to slide into your pack. Perfect for travelling and camping.
You can also get a large plate and small cup, all three nestle to fit into each other when folded flat, for perfect packing.

I’m absolutely gutted that somebody at school stole mine when I left it in the staff kitchen overnight. Hold onto your spork, it’s a precious commodity!
