    Hey everyone, I haven't posted on here in a long time but my EDC kits have been getting a lot more use, and looking at investing a bit more in having a nice eating kit. I currently have a nice snow peak chopstick set, a TI-spork, etc. but looking to get a nice fork/knife/spoon set as well, as usually what i bring for lunch takes more then a sport to eat. Snowpeak sells a really nice all metal set that I wouldn't mind getting, didn't know if anyone had a pic of the set with any maxpedition organizers? I have the normal EDC one and looking at the specs the set should fit (6.5" long) but was wondering if anyone got it in either the micro or mini?

    Thanks all, glad to be back with the community :)

    I don’t know this Snow Peak cutlery, and I have neither a MP micro nor a mini. But as an alternative I just want to throw in the ring this Esbit cutlery.

    Thanks batteur, Esbit is def. a nice company (I have their pocket stove and was def. impressed by the quality), however looking at the length of the utensil set it's just over 7" which is a 1/2" longer then the snow peak ones are, I'm trying to decrease bulk/weight so anything from 5-6.5" is what I'm hoping for! Here's the link for the snow peak ones I'm looking at here and due to the fact that it'd match my chopstick set, it'll appease my gear OCD haha

    I just recieved two CRKT Eat' N Tools today from Amazon. I wanted something for my MP EDC and this fits in nicely with all the other items I have in there.

    I have one as well, they're pretty nifty, but since for work i bring things like lasagna, etc. I like having a functioning knife/fork setup especially

    I also carry snow peak chopsticks and spork. Actually two sporks because my husband's EDC bag seems to be me.

    On the german product site there’s a tiny little bit more info: packing dimensions (I guess that’s with that pouch): B 50 × H 180 mm. They say the spoon is 155 mm long, the knife and fork probably too, but I’m not sure.

    For my eating irons (actually plastic spork) I use a cocoon pouch. The shape is better suited to holdings cutlery (IMHO) and is fairly compact.

    I have a LMF spork in my EDC bag, along with a Sea to Summit TI spork, and a Snowpeak TI Spork (that lives with my snowpeak TI mug)
    I do plan in getting a TI knife fork spoon set from snowpeak eventually (along with a TI plate and bowl)

    I carry the Snow Peak titanium spork in my lunch kit, but I'm hoping to upgrade to a full cutlery set (plus those neat-looking SP chopsticks) in the new year. Part of me loves the pure impracticality of the Eat'N Tool, but not enough to actually USE one.

    I have one of those spoon/fork Swiss Army knife knock offs. It splits in two when you deploy the spoon and fork.

    I like it for the size, when I worked in an office, it was great

    Eat finger foods - the tools are attached to us! All kidding aside this is a great thread. I never really considered EDC eating tools and now I'll get to see what the pros carry. Thanks!

    I carry a Lifeventure Titanium Spork in my bag. I originally thought it would just be for occasional use, but as it turns out I'm getting to use it all the time. No more forgetting to pick up a plastic fork from the refectory at work :D

    As much as I love my ti spork, I keep a fork and spoon I got from Goodwill at the office for routine eating chores - trying to eat ramen with a spork is comical, but not effective.

    That said, I probably will splurge on a ti utensil set, just for giggles, if nothing else.

    They list the weight for those, but I really wish they would list the size/length. The description, "Scaled down for easy packing, this flatware set only weighs 38 tiny grams." makes me think that the length is a tad shorter than normal and might not be suitable for those with bear paws or eating with gloves on.

    The Snow Peak 3 piece set has long been on my list, but some years ago we stopped in an LL Bean in Maine on the way home and they has the MSR titanium Spoon/Fork set on clearance and I picked them up. Springing for the Snow Peak Set to get a set with a knife would be a bit of a splurge for now.

    ATB,
    Sam

    I have a Ka-Bar hobo knife but I also like the cocoon pouch/organizer idea. In that I would put a selection of airline cutlery from eBay.
