These little fellas “Light our Fire”

an array of colourful sporks

Ali was reminded last week of another item we truelly love…sporks! This tool is so handy, and proved essential and an ergonomic pleasure to use when at a music festival in Ireland last week. Also, the fact that there is such a colourful range is quite endearing, that they are both practical and aesthetically pleasing…everyone can choose a colour that suits their personality! But luckily they are not solely a marketable gimmick, but a useful and functional tool, indeed a great balance of form and function found by designer Joachim Nordwall.

Producers Light My Fire say;

“Our spoon-fork-knife combo brings a bit of civilization to the wild and a bit of the wild to civilization. Designed especially for Light My Fire by Scandinavian designer Joachim Nordwall. The Spork is perfect for your backpack, boat, picnic basket, lunchbox, purse or briefcase.”


  • Heat resistant PC material – doesn’t get soft in hot/boiling water
  • Teflon-friendly – won’t scratch precious nonstick titanium cookware
  • Machine washable – but don’t wash your fragile down sleeping bag in the same load
  • Extremly durable – doubles as a tent stake, catapult, and LNT poop trowel (dual use in the latter function at your own risk)
