The Alpha Light Cutlery uses a durable hard-anodized aircraft grade aluminum combined with a sleek yet-strong shape to create an extremely lightweight utensil at a surprisingly affordable price. By hard anodizing the aluminum it forms a kind of "exoskeleton," so the shape of the utensils can be slimmer and lighter. This hardened shell also encapsulates the aluminum, so there's no risk of the alloy leaching onto food.
AlphaLight Cutlery is available in two sets. The two-piece is the ultimate lightweight backpacker's set. Also available individually: fork, knife, spork, regular length spoon, the unique and ultra light SHORT spoon and the popular LONG spoon. The long-handled spoon design is perfect for eating out of individual camp food packets and using tall pots now popular with the Jetboil-shape stove/pot kits.
