No bright color-coordinated decal labels on the down- uh...handle. Not OCP.

Until I have a gram weight reading from a certified scale I am not touching that thing. And where is the style. To be REALLY OCP it has to look great and function like crap, or at least that is how my OCP world rolls.

Scha-wingggg!

I just have to add: Thinkgeek.com is, without a doubt, THE source for whatever the geek equivalent of OCP is.

what you need is one of these - perfect for "fixing" competitors - especially in the rink

How stupid. Pet rocks were probably dumber, but at least they were rocks and not something that had to be machined out of rare metal that would be better suited to making framing hammers.

I mean really, a titanium spork? Ti is quite brittle in comparison to other metals. They don't say what grade of Ti it is, but if they are pure titanium they would run a risk of shattering.

I've got a Ti cookset as well. My ultralight, multi-fuel MSR stove nests inside it. I guess I'm OCP about camping, too!

The problem with the REI stuff is it's made from CP Ti, very weak. I bent my spork and cup by just banging them on the table. We need some of the stronger 6-4 stuff. THEN you'd be OCP for sure.
