Long Handled Titanium Spoon

If you are like me and eat a lot of freezer bag or dehydrated meals out of plastic bags, chances are good that you are going to drop some oatmeal or curried chicken down the front of your shirt. That’s not good, because the bears will come for you at night….

However, you can improve your chances of hitting your mouth (or avoiding your shirt) by getting yourself a long handled titanium spoon to eat your meals with. The extra length really comes in handy when you are trying to dig the last precious calories out of a ziploc and makes a much better catapult in the event of a food fight.

  1. Awesome! I'm a huge fan of the long handled titanium spoon as well! Before that, all I brought was a lexan spoon, which now serves as a backup utensil left in the vehicle.

  2. I gather this spoon is manufactured by Shanghai Kingsound Titanium-tech Inc. but marked (laser-etched, I suppose) with many brand names including backpackinglight.com, REI Ti WARE, Sea To Summit, and Katadyn, among others.

    I own the completely polished and shiny REI Ti WARE version. Nowadays (I’m writing this in 2014), however, the entirely polished version seems unavailable. backpackinglight.com, which claims to have designed this spoon, says they’re out of stock.

    The spoon is available in a dark gray, matte finish version, and also in a version with a polished bowl but dark gray, matte finished on handle.

    backpackinglight.com also offers an even lighter version of this spoon, punched from thinner titanium sheet and weighing only 0.39 ounces (11 grams). It has an anodized violet-color finish. By comparison, the heavier, original version weighs a whopping 0.7 ounces (19.8 grams). So the purple spoon is 33 percent lighter. Unfortunately the new, lighter spoon is OUT OF STOCK. Unavailable.

    I’m glad I got my two shiny spoons before the shiny version became unavailable. I hope the shiny version reappears on the market, as I’d like to give them as gifts. Do you hear that, Shanghai Kingsound Titanium-tech Inc.? They seem plenty light to me, plenty long, plenty strong, and mouth-comfy. And shiny.

  3. Thought I try the Toaks polished bowl version (0.7oz) but I hate the handle. They don’t bother easing the edges of the die cut pressed titanium sheet it’s made of and the Titanium dioxide anodization has a rough dry feel that is somehow just uncomfortable. The combination of odd texture and sharp edges just make this spoon unpleasant to hold.
    FYI – SeaToSummit makes an aluminum alloy version that is 0.4 oz but not polished which REI currently stocks.
    FYI – Paria (www.pariaoutdoorproducts.com) are currently selling an all polished titanium version that is 0.6oz. They seem to be the only one. It seems to be the same price, size and shape as the TOAKS. All the other vendors I found after fairly extensive search have the rough TO finished handle.
