A spork (also known as a foon) is a hybrid form of cutlery taking the form of a spoon-like shallow scoop with two to four forktines. Spork-like utensils, such as the terrapin fork or ice cream fork, have been manufactured since the late 19th century; Patents for spork-like designs date back to at least 1874, and the word "spork" was registered as a trademark in the US and the UK decades later. They are used by fast food restaurants, schools, prisons, the military, backpackers and in airline meals. Most past common use in America of the spork, was it was used for eating turtles. Today the most common use is it's the main utensil for backpackers. Materials such as stainless steel, silver, aluminum, titanium, and polycarbonate plastic have been used in spork manufacture. Plastic sporks are common in prisons in the United States because they are difficult to form into weapons. An ice cream spork from the late 1800's.
