I Can't Decide if This is Weird or Cool

Today's post is about spoon/fork/knife combinations.

They look like this:

And they come in all different colors which is pretty cool.  The advertisements all say that they're perfect for camping or hiking or in the office.  I guess I can see that, but I still think it's a little weird.  And bound to be messier than a spoon, a fork, and a knife.  Sure, you only have one thing to find in your lunch bag, instead of three, but if you need a spoon and a fork, one end will be kind of sticky or messy.  And if you use the knife to spread something, and then don't wipe it off all the way, you're going to have a pocket of peanut butter when you bite into your lasagna.  

Or whatever.

What are your thoughts, readers?  Would you use this gadget?

Love and Spoons,

P.S. In case you were wondering, they actually made stuff like this back in the Civil War era:

The knife was separate, but had one end that would clasp onto the fork/spoon.  (I got the picture from a website where they sold this stuff.)

  1. Looks like you need to have nimble teeth and lips to avoid getting sliced by the "knork". Youch!!

    P.S. I saw some unnecessary quotations at the grocery store yesterday and thought of you. :-)
