I don't like it. It seems too cumbersome to use.
My lightweight, compact utensils for camping are much more practical.

I agree with roadfix. I would think it would be uncomfortable to use. The fork and knife don't look like they'd be very useful either.

I like my Titanium Spork. I carry it and a pair of chopsticks with me everywhere.

Plus that thing just looks huge and ridiculous.

I wonder why someone thought to make it. Who did they see as their target audience?

Just looks like another way to get folks to part with their money.

I have one of those old fashioned Boy Scout knives. It has a multitude of things in it including a spoon and a fork. However, it is quite bulky and cumbersome. I keep in the glove box of my truck for emergency use. I actually haven't used it for a couple years now.
