Some choices....

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.
