Sporty Spork


Brendan I. Koerner's "The Goods" column in the New York Times looks at the spork created by Swedish product designer Joachim Nordwall for the outdoor gear company Light My Fire. The stylish new design breaks down and reconstructs the classic cafeteria model with the practical needs of campers in mind: the spoon and fork elements have been divided and set at opposite ends to make a two-headed utensil with a serrated edge. Made of a heat resistant plastic that can withstand boiling, The Light My Fire Spork is strong enough that it can be used as a tent stake, writes Koerner. $9.95 for a mulit-colored four-pack at REI.
