I've had a ti spork for five years or so. I got it at REI for ten bucks when I used to travel for work. I discovered that when I get a craving for ice cream and I'm traveling, the only spoon I would be able to track down is plastic. And, if you've ever tried to shove a plastic spoon into a pint of ice cream, it's quite a sad. Needless to say I've traveled with it since. I had to explain the ice cream story to the TSA at an airport in Atlanta once. Surprisingly, they let me keep the spork. I guess the guy was an ice cream fan too.
