A folding fork spoon knife?

A portable pogo stick for crossing streams?

Daren get credit for having one of the three utensils. ;) I could not find any info on these. They cost me a quarter. ;) The other item is a small pepper mill. :D

Delete that other items description, you might still get him :)

Daren for the win. (he made me think of multi-tool when he said knife). I wonder if they are the original prototypes for the leatherman. Probably collectors items :)

The cutlery set has a swing clip the locks it opened or closed. Neat little set. I am amazed what I find at the church sales sometimes. I had two nice Ugly Sticks in my hand for $5 ea. but before I checked out, I looked them over good and noticed the each had one or two busted eyelets so I put them down. I stopped by on saturday for the cleanup bag sale where you can fill a shopping bag for $2.50 and the fishing poles and a diawa spinning reel were still there so I nabbed them. My dad has built a couple nice fenwick rods and said he can replace the busted eyelets so I came out good. I found a packable fishing pole and reel combo in a case that i had overlooked the previous night. I also spotted a water filter drink bottle that I had overlooked as just a sports bottle so I threw it in the bag. I also picked up an old portable Sears Kenmore sweeper for three dollars that I bought just for the metal hoses to use for a chimney for my woodstove project. I hope that contest is due the end of October . :lol:
The pepper mill has a "P" stamped on the push button so I imagine it was part of a salt and pepper set. It is heavy for its size but I could not resist nabbing it as I am a pepper junkie! :lol: I will keep it in my lunchbox. :D

I still don't understand how they can hide that big spoon head in the small handle... :?:

I'm thinking I'll start carrying cheap wood chopsticks for camping..why not!We use them around here all the time... :roll: ..You can't beat the weight factor if you use them for eating,stirring,fork,fork,spoon,stabber and whatever else..like even firestarting kindling when you are done eating with them.
I see packages of 100 sets at thrift stores for a dollar or two... ;)
