Morsel Spork Is Champion Camping Utensil

Written by 

It might not boast every feature of the most tricked-out Swiss Army Knife, but the Morsel Spork may well be the coolest camping utensil to come along in quite a while.

Or, as one user testified on the Morsel Spork Kickstarter page, "[T]hat's the best spork I've ever seen."

The makers describe their device the way: "Morsel is part spoon, part fork, part spatula, resulting in the world's first... Sporkatula? Foonula? We couldn't decide, so we decided to call it Morsel."

The goal, they add, was to come up with a utensil that could better perform where other camping utensils and conventional sporks had come up short.

The Morsel features a full-sized fork at one end, with a strong, slightly serrated outside edge to take on tougher scraping chores. The long handle allows for either end of the spork to be used without feeling like both are begging for space inside the user's hand. The opposite end of the device features a rubber-edged, squishier surface with a depression. This can serve as a spot, a spatula, or a"digging" tool that allows for scrounging at the corners of a bowl, can, or other container where food items have a tendency to stubbornly bunch in corners.

Or, as part of the Kickstarter pitch puts it, "The asymmetrical scraper makes it more universal for different cups, bowls, and the curves within them."

The Morsel's 10.5-inch length easily allows for cleanly retrieving every part of the kind of bagged meals that backpackers sometimes carry.

With a little less than a month to go, the Morsel's Kickstarter campaign had more than doubled its original goal of $20,000 USD, with a $9 pledge yielding one Morsel.
