  • Titanium cutlery: Lexan everytime ... cheaper, lighter.

  • Titanium Cutlery: One small Lexan spoon is all you need to eat with but any prudent backpacker carries a cutting tool. I am interested in the lightest one that works. That may or may not be titanium. I currently use a small 2.5 inch gerber that is half serrated half straight bladed, and weighs 1.25 oz. Is there a titanium equivalent that is Lighter?

  • Lexan spoon! titaniun is too expensive, the spork will scratch the heck out of many nonstick pots.
    sometimes keep it cheap and simple.

  • Titanium, expense and the brand craze: I'm keen to reduce pack weight but not obsessed with brands.
    I use recycled PET bottles for water & fuel (not SIGG Aluminium) and a plastic spoon.
    Food bowl is Vitalite margarine tub with lid.
    Pen knife is wooden Opinel not multi-tool Swiss Army.
    Stove is Trangia of course.
    Beware a large pack, it's all too tempting to fill it.

  • I am so sorry those who are not outdoor people have ruined the free O-ring for the rest of us. I've been hiking and going on week canoe trips since 13 yrs old. People who don't know the outdoors, don't know what they are missing!

  • plastic is just as light and much cheaper
    Jan 6th 2001 08:31:45 PM
  • Titanium is lighter, stronger, and faster than the six million dollar man, OK maybe not that strong, but with the MSR Ti-Spoon tool, you have the best of both worlds.

  • I don't necessarily like to hike alone but so many people in the world that I know don't enjoy hiking. I certainly can't not hike because I don't know people that do. Dec 13th 1999 02:07:41 AM
  • The "enduro dog" Welsh terrier likes 8 hour jaunts with no water save the puddlets found in forest-floor leaves. She barks not.
