It shows a different kit now using the same link as you originally supplied, Jim. This time for $19.95. The supplier changed it, apparently. He or she must have read our forum or something. Not that I want it, but for the money, that looks like a reasonable deal this time.

chopsticks are stronger and more compact than cutlery, also easier to clean and cheap and light enough to use as disposable cutlery for when you can't clean them. start using them and you'll throw away your forks.

"chopsticks are stronger and more compact than cutlery, also easier to clean and cheap and light enough to use as disposable cutlery for when you can't clean them. start using them and you'll throw away your forks."

-- I would say that statement is highly debateable. It depends on what the chopsticks are made out of, what the length is, and on personal preference.

actually they'd make good tent pegs. won't rust and very light. where's the disadvantage over other skewer pegs?

cut down chopsticks to the length of a fork and they are undeniably lighter cheaper and easier to clean. trying to clean between the prongs of a fork without a brush is difficult. i can bend a fork with one hand not so a bamboo chopstick. i pack a dozen in my possibles bag for all sorts of use spare buttons (make a small peg) tent pegs, tinder etc
as you say it's a matter of prefernce with eating utensils but i'd recommend at least giving them a try. my 8 year old nieces can learn to eat with them in a few minutes.

Thanks, that's a much better explanation. From what I hear, forks were a luxury with many cowboys, pioneers, etc. They just used their knives.

I'd say it dangerously lacks in the fire starting department.
