Source of spoons?

Postby Thunder Thighs » Fri May 13, 2005 8:49 pm

I have a Lexan one from REI (had one, but I seem to have lost it now).

I've heard that "DairyQueen" makes a really long one for their Sundaes. Anyone have any feedback on this?

What are some other good spoons?

There are lexan or polycarbonate spoons available from almost everyone who sells outdoor gear. My favorite, however is one like this that's sold at Campmor. For some reson, I prefer the elongated shape to the more rounded shape of the REI spoons.

Another interesting new design is the GSI Piranha "Foon" that's sold by Backcountry Gear.

I haven't tried the Dairy Queen model you mentioned, though I may have to swing by DQ for "research purposes" to have a look. One issue, however, with any long-handled spoon is that they can be hard to pack, which is one reason I prefer a 2-piece solution that includes the extender.

Long titanium spoon

Backpacking Light now markets a long-handled, titanium spoon in addition to 1/16" titanium rods. Titanium would work out well for your skewer design.
