I don't think any of the reviewers actually used the spoon. I thought the compact sliding design was clever at first, but food gets caught really easily in the sliding mechanism, and is extremely hard to get out. Prepare to smell your first dinner for the whole trip! I threw mine away.

First off, sporks are awful. They make a bad spoon, and an even worse fork. But this spoon is tops. I liked my first one so much, I had to get a couple more. I wouldn't recommend digging any cat-holes with it, but under normal use, it should last several years. It's small enough to fit inside my 600ml cup/pot, and very light. Two downsides: it's got some fine little grooves that may prove a pain to clean thoroughly in the field, and it's fairly short when fully extended (read: messy knuckles when eating out of a bag). Also, i saw fit to use an emory board to sand down some "sharper" edges on the handle. Overall: I wouldn't own three if it weren't a good, lightweight, compact, sevicable product. Recommended.
