    Why - please explain.

    If the idea is to get the scran down as fast as possible 'racing'- then it matters not if it is wood or metal. Spoons have been carried by soldiers throughout the ages - what makes a spoon a 'racing' spoon? walt-ness?

    MiB has a set of very cheap steel KFS that fasten together with a split ring (Oooooh Nurse!)

    I can get through your mess tin faster than a greasy rat up a drainpipe and still maintain my dignity.
  14. Had every type of spoon from nicked NAAFI plastic sh it to gucci titanium action form Cotswold Camping(nicked too!!!) - who cares they all do the job. Key is to remember to have one on you - don't matter what type. That said, good old fashioned stainless are good for belting each other when the boredom sets in
