The Sporkfe

Why does the sporkfe fascinate me so?


It's a spoon. It's a fork. It's a knife. Some call it a splade-- sold commercially in Australia for the last 50 years under the Splayds brand name-- but I prefer sporkfe. Really, when was the last time you ate your food with a blade?

I have no idea why I bought these. But at least I saved myself from the indignity of owning the Mother of All Swiss Army Knives.
