Ka-Bar Hobo. It's a tad heavy to be competing with Sporks.

The HumanGear GoBites Duo & Trio look almost useable. Still, a titanium fork and spoon set is hard to beat; I have a few, different patterns, different manufacturers, all good.

I have not used this product but it seems good for when space is an issue.

Or if space is even more of an issue:
https://www.amazon.de/Card-Cutlery-Essbesteck-Feldessbesteck-Scheckkartenformat/dp/B0012KPNNG
It works Ok and is fairly easy to clean.

Or if you want to go in style:

Unfortunately the tactical spork is illegal aroud here too. It´s considered as a weapon concealed as item of daily use.

Nice, aber ich nicht sprechen deutsche -- what's the long thing next to the knife? Is that a sharpening steel?

What do you really need? I don't really need a fork, chopsticks will do quite well, but I do want a good spoon -- Toaks Ti spoon is a tad longer than a standard teaspoon and according to one of the reviews, would make a good soupspoon. That and a pair of chopsticks of which I have many sets from past Chinese take-out -- good to go.

I don't speak German, either but I am curious about the translation of this word - verfügbar.

Handle with care - this is a family forum....

I agree on titanium utensils. I have some full size ti spoons which I use regularly. they are abhorred by Mrs. Hikermor because, in her view, they are for "camping." true enough, but they are light, strong, and far less clunky than our regular tableware.

I can live without a fork, but I always carry a spoon, and of course a knife. I like a good stainless steel spoon. It is a bit heavier but can withstand abuse (yes, I have had occasion to dig with my spoon).

I assume you mean the medieval set. The thing next to the knife is a bodkin. In medieval Europe it was used like a fork, i. e. to pick up solid food. In these times a bowl for soup (or a cavity in the table) and a spoon where usually provided by the host.

In a context specific translation it means "available". The entire text in that line would be "Currently not available".

I may have to disapoint you and the kids wink. You did not learn a dirty word.
