A basic in every camp cutlery set, the Alpha Light Spork uses durable, hard anodised aluminum combined with a sleek yet strong shape to create an extremely lightweight utensil.
By hard anodising the aluminum it forms a kind of 'exoskeleton' or shell. This encapsulates the aluminum, so there’s no risk of the alloy leaching into food. Its traditional size and shape also brings a little bit of home with you wherever you need it.
- Ultralight and super-strong aircraft aluminum alloy utensil
- Conforms to FDA food safety standards
- Smooth matte finish
- Comes with a mini carabiner
- Tough and lightweight for lifelong use
Frequently Asked questions
Be sterilized with bleach?
Yes. Bleach will not damage the anodized surface of the Alpha cutlery. Please use bleach in moderation in the backcountry – it kills ‘good’ bacteria as well as harmful bacteria.
Note – Sea to Summit also sells a range of titanium cutlery. Please see the Titanium Cutlery pages.
Be used with non-stick frying pan / pot finishes?
No. The hard edges of the cutlery will damage either a PTFE (Teflon) or a ceramic coating. Nylon cooking utensils are preferable for this application.
Be washed in a dishwasher?
No. The caustic cleanser used in dishwashers will damage the anodized finish of Alpha cutlery.
Is there a health risk if the surface is damaged by friction?
The individual utensils are hard anodised, which prevents a user from coming into contact with the aluminium alloy core of the cutlery. Contact between the cutlery pieces can cause visible scratches in the anodising. Usually, these scratches are limited to the surface of the anodisation.
