spork is a result of a spoon spliced with a fork, which we thought was a pretty cool invention but the Titanium Kung Foon elevates the spork to the next level by incorporating a nice pair of wooden chopsticks into it. the spork part of the Kung Foon needs little introduction: we all know it is good for biting into your food and the deep bowl form allows scooping of soups and cereals but it is the chopsticks part that adds to its functionality. the chopsticks slide into the foon handle, transforming the otherwise short utensil into a long handled utensil that is well suited for scooping, scraping or stirring in narrow pots.
