This instructable will show you how to convert a cheap stainless steel spoon into a spork & knife. From top to bottom, it has fork prongs, a spoon bowel, and finally the handle has been sharpened to act as a knife.
The motivation? This instrument and a large soup bowl are practically the two most useful utensils that I use at work since my employer offers free cereal and fruit.
