The 8 Best Folding Utensils
This wiki has been updated 5 times since it was first published in May of 2020. If you spend a lot of time enjoying the great outdoors, you are bound to get hungry from time to time. Disposable flatware is flimsy and not good for the environment, so this is where a set of folding cutlery comes in handy. These eliminate unnecessary waste, are much sturdier than plastic, and pack down into very small cases that are easy to stash in a backpack or even your pocket.

If you are an avid camper, then you already know the importance of having the appropriate equipment. You want to avoid leaving behind disposable plates and utensils, so investing in camping dishes and cook sets is a must. It only makes sense that reusable flatware comes next.
We have selected options that are compact, meaning they fold down to just a few inches long for easy storage and transport. Our durable selections are made from stainless steel or titanium, and they have various features, such as textured handles and additional attached devices. We also ensured that our selections fit a wide range of budgets because you don't have to be rich to enjoy some time in the woods.
The Orblue Camping Set is made of stainless steel and includes a bottle opener and carrying case. The Navaris Cutlery Set also has a carrying pouch, but it is made from titanium, so it is very light in weight. The removable carabiner keeps all 3 utensils together. The Cluck Multi-Function has an aluminum handle that is textured to make it easy to hold, and this particular choice has 6 different tools, including a reamer, bottle opener, and corkscrew. We also included the simple MSR Folding Kit, which is a "spork" with a pinch-to-close handle, making it one of the most basic models selected, but still just as useful for eating.
