Not much to write here; the
Lexan (plastic) spoon is really the most popular amongst ultralight
hikers. It's lightweight and so-called indestructible.
The 'norm' is to chop and cut the spoon even further to reduce
weight. Keep in mind though, that this item will be one of the
lightest pieces of equipment you will have anyway, so cutting
some off doesn't have a great impact on the overall packweight.
By the way, the Lexan knife doesn't score very well here, because
a pocket knife will serve as a better cutting tool.
