I put it to you, the jury: What could possibly be cooler than a titanium spork?

I give up... what is the advantage of a titanium spork over an aluminium spork?

Stronger, weighs less.

You can basically make any steel part out of titanium and save half the weight without reducing strength. For backpackers, the extra cost is worth it.

And here I thought it was just for the 'Kewlness".. Laughing. Jacob, one of the guys we cave with, has a large rack custom made from titanium. Most are Stainless Steel (for strength) and weigh a pound or two. His titanium one is the envy of anyone that has carried a normal rack for a mile or two through a cave..
