Seriously? I wasn't in a foreign country, I was here at a Chinese Buffet. I'll have to ask my daughter's boyfriend about that. I was trying to eat a jello cube with my chopsticks. I was not being successful. He was. So I stabbed the jello cube and ate it. And he said, "Or you can just do that" and laughed.

Give me a knife, far more useful for preparing or acquiring food then a fork or spoon. You can drink or pick up anything you could use a fork or spoon on.

Maybe that's why, as a whole, they are thinner than we are. LOL

Default Knife

Knife all the way. I can drink soup from the bowl it's in if need be, but I can't cut tough meat with a spoon or fork or peal fruits and veggies.

Wow, talk about budget cuts, that seems pretty odd, is that new? We had Fork, Knife and spoon in the chow hall in basic in 1980 and carried our own Mess kits with all three in the field; but then again we also did the dishes (KP).

I do fine with chopsticks but given only American cutlery to choose from, Im going with the knife. An M9 would be my first choice! Cuts, dices, slices anything from Constantina wire to fingers (If your not careful when your using it to cut wire especially).

I also only had a spoon in Marine Corps bootcamp. I think it varies depending on who your Drill Instructors / Sergeants are.

No we had forks and knives to but we were only aloud to use a spoon and we had 10 mins to eat .

I go with the spoon as first choice. I got in the habit of eating everything with my spoon in Viet Nam. I still have my VN mess kit complete with knife, fork and spoon. Fork and knife does not show the wear that the spoon has.
