    For ~$15 it's a great eating set. Add a plastic spoon and chopsticks ... that's all the utensils you'll ever need.

    Since other not-really-keychain eatin' irons have crept into the fray....heres my KaBar and despite its weight, I like it very much and fulfills its mission quite nicely.

    I have one of those Ka-Bar Hobo kits, but its easier to use plastic stuff that I can grab from any restaurant.

    I have a Light My Fire Ti Spork, Kershaw Tremor and 30oz Yeti. I use all three of them 5 days a week and the Kershaw and Yeti on the weekends.

    I saw these Magellan Ti sporks at Academy a while back, so I picket up a few of those. One in my lunch for work and a couple more in the backpack for camping or hiking or whatever. I like them, so have not looked for a replacement since. I also carry many knives with me, so cutting is not an issue.

    If I stumble upon a Light My Fire Ti Spork I will probably get one of those. But I doubt I'll look to order something else. I bought a few of the plastic LightMyFire sporks and eventually the tines break off. I have broken a whole 3 pack, so I won't be buying any more of the plastic ones.

    I use the CRKT Eat'n Tool. It's a little short, but gets the job done.
    I'm also on the hunt for a good set of chopsticks, not made in China.

    I'm assuming you mean mainland China... Would Taiwan be OK? Hong Kong?

    Not sure where you live. If there is any sort of Korean population in your neck of the woods, you might look at some of their stores. Keep in mind that Korean chopsticks are more similar to Japanese chopsticks in terms of shape. More pointy than most Chinese chopsticks.

    Metal or plastic are good materials in that they are durable and resistant to mold. However. They both are not quite as good as wood or bamboo for handling slippery foods such as noodles or dumplings. Unless you're looking for short length chopsticks see if you can find any made of ironwood. Brown color; tougher material. Inherently resistant to mold.

    You can find chopsticks of titanium etc at various websites. Even Amazon. May be from mainland China though...

    L'chaim!

    Not in the plastic case. You could probably stack the tools on top of each other and place them diagonally in the tin, though. However, I think it would take up too much space. Sorry.

    Thanks for the info man!
    I've looked online, and haven't been impressed with either the reviews or price so far.
    I'm in Hawaii for now, I'll have to check out China Town and look into some good wooden ones.

    @cricketofdeth: glad to be of help. Good hunting! I'd think in a China Town area in Hawaii you'd come up with plenty of choices!

    I keep a couple of sets of milsurp flatware and a mess kit I picked up at a military surplus store in a vehicle kit and they get used with some regularity at picnics, ballgames, lunch afield. Cost $2 a piece. Very sturdy and completely functional.

    I just use my EDC knife of the day, usually a Gerber EZ out and my Wally World spork

    You'll find these everywhere from Amazon to eBay. Shouldn't set you back more than ~$15 or so.
