    My Light My Fire spork along with my handmade cloth napkin fits inside of my pen/pencil case.

    The Light My Fire spork fits in the pencil case. The Light My Fire spork case also fits in the pencil case.

    I bought mine (case & spoon is sold as set - matching colors) from Amazon. I was hoping to use the case to carry my titanium version of the spork. I thought it would be useful when there is no ready place to rinse the spork & I did not want to waste a drop of my drinking water to rinse it. It is not working as I hoped. The titanium spork has a more pronounced curve towards the spoon part. I tried "flattening" the spork but even so, the case gapes open on its sides when I force the spork into it.

    I do not like the spork that came with the case. It feels & looks like plastic to me (the mango yellow color is pretty).

    I also wash & re-use plasticware, until they break.

    Do Spork's owners know if the utensil fits inside a Pen/Pencil Pouch?

    Light My Fire now do a case that holds 2 sporks, it even has a loop at one end that will accommodate the clip of a key strap :)

    I have always used some kind of portable metal utensils mostly metal to wash after use. I tried the practice with my delightful better half but that resulted in the loss of most of my dessert forks and spoons. I now clean and reuse the strong disposable fork and spoons that are provided with take out meals.

    I think a couple of Sporks are in order but I would be happier if they made a version with a securing mechanism such as an hollow ring between the spoon and the fork to which a lanyard could be attached.

    I also saw sets of durable plastic spoon/fork/knife in many colors which could be right up my alley.

    @ncb4, One of my pet peeves is how wasteful we are as a society, and I'd much rather carry around my spork than use disposable plastic ware when I get takeout for lunch (which is often the case, since I'm on the road a lot). It's annoying that it's packaged as a set, and most times, people only use a spoon or a fork, then throw the rest away. Besides, I just love the word *spork* :-)

    I also often carry my own chopsticks, too. Somehow I didn't get the genes that allow me to separate disposable chopsticks without rendering them unusable. I have a hashibako that holds the chopsticks and also a spoon; with those, I'm set for all office dining possibilities. I've had a titanium spork on my Amazon wish list forever, though--it's smaller.

    and +1 on nukediver's mad packing skillz. I'm especially impressed that the bag doesn't looks like it's bulging with all that stuff in there.

    OK, this is a stupid question, but why do you all carry sporks around with you? I could understand if you were bringing your own food, but nukediver didn't list anything like that in her list of stuff. (And boy, were you able to carry a lot in your Co-Pilot!)

    Anyway, nukediver, I don't normally like black, but the contrast between the black and the Iberian Dyneema is so striking: I absolutely love it. The pouches you chose are perfect with it, of course. And even though I have a Co-Pilot myself, I remain amazed by how much you were able to pack in there, and still have room to spare. I hope you keep enjoying your new bag.

    Good grief, I leave the forum for a few hours and now we're discussing spork gorings :-o

    And yes, I suppose it would be hard to find if it were red!

    That Timbuk2 iPad case coordinates really nicely with the Co-Pilot and Iberian OPs.

    I think you need to get a red spork.
