We all need spoons, and I eat a lot of pre cooked meals, normally boil in the bags. The surprise is how long this spoon is in length. The reason this was bought was I like a chrome slippery shiny surface to eat from. Titanium is great but I find food sticks to an unpolished spoon. It also has two advantages over other spoons, having the nut and spanner cut outs, which I hope I never have to use in an emergency and the spoon bowl is generous in size compared to any other camping spoons I have.
