I skip full-on food preparation on the trail preferring to rehydrate commercial or home prepared meals. I also don’t use plates or bowls anymore so I only need a spoon or spork to get food from the meal bag or peanut butter jar to my mouth. I have large hands and find many other smaller plastic Sporks or short handled spoons annoying as I’m either eating with an uncomfortable handle or a short handle covered in food.
I discovered lightweight titanium long handled spoons a number of years ago and was instantly drawn to them. While I don’t mind the grainy feel to the handle which provides good grip even in wet conditions, I’m not a fan of the grainy texture of the spoon head in my mouth, I mean who eats at home with a rough textured spoon?
The Toaks Titanium Long Handle Spoon works equally well for those with small hands as well as large hands given it has a decent length long handle. Typically when Gill and I hike as a couple and are eating commercially prepared meals out of a bag, we will share a spoon during dinner purely because of the long handle. Very cosy I know!
However, there are some negatives with this spoon. Long handled spoons in general weigh more than their shorter cousins and in this case this one comes in at 20 grams (the official weight says 19 grams). Shorter plastic sporks are almost half this weight but in all honesty we’re only talking about 9 grams and the extra handle length and stability that comes with a metal spoon means its worth it.
The other thing worth noting is that similar versions of this spoon I have used in the past are priced at well over $30 whereas the Toaks Titanium Long Handle Spoon is AUD $20.00 RRP or less which makes this spoon great value.
So if you’re looking for a metal long handle spoon then you can’t go past this one!

I have reasonably large hands and this very long handle provides plenty of grip to reach the bottom of a dehydrated meal bag without getting my hands covered in food
