Fork or spoon?

If you had to pick one to use the rest of your life, which would it be?

To make things more interesting, knives do not exist, but you can have a fork or spoon with a sharpened edge, at your own risk.

And no sporks, either.

You can hang a spoon on your nose using only the moisture from your breath.

Try that with any other utensil.

Spoon. I use way too many spoons. Like six a day. I use forks maybe a couple times a week.

I like to think of it as my "food shovel".

I agree on the spoon, but how would you eat steak or salad or spaghetti?

Spork for me. My kids have to use these in school because forks and spoons are too dangerous. I ate lunch with my son at the school one day, and i must say that a spork is a damn fine tool for eating a lettuce salad.

In a world with no knives, all your gonna be eating is fruit and carrots...so who needs either one.
No spoon, no fork...just your hands.

Sometimes I'll use the spoon after I'm done with the fork. Or other times I spoon and fork at the same time. But mostly I just like fork.
