Our take Ultralighters might forgo a knife or multitool, but almost everyone carries a spoon. If that’s all you want in your kit, we recommend the Muncher: a spork, knife, and 10-function multitool all in a single piece of titanium. At less than an ounce, there’s zero fat, but one tester who brought the Muncher on the PCT used its serrated edge to cut kindling, the box cutter to open resupply packages, and the included ferro rod to light a camp fire. The Muncher withstood 1,000 miles on the trail without scratching or denting. (It’s not strong enough to pry or torque with, though.) Ding: $50 is a lot for a spork, no matter how versatile.
Trail cred “I never thought I would need a peeler for a thru-hike, but my trail family picked up some fresh veggies at a fruit stand in California and it was indispensable for preparing the resulting meal,” our tester says. .7 oz.
