Description

A set of two combined cutlery utensils with a protective case. The Sporks (an amalgamation of the words 'spoon' and 'fork') have a spoon at one end and a fork with a serrated knife edge at the other. Traditionally the spork has a spoon bowl with tines rather than the spoon and fork at opposite ends. Joachim Nordwall redesigned it to provide a more satisfactory utensil feeling that the spoon and tines combination was a compromise. The Light My Fire spork is curved in both directions making it easy to swap between the spoon and the fork in the hand. The dimensions listed are for the case.
