#TikTokMadeMeBuyIt Flat Spork

Above, a spork I keep in my wallet.

Full disclosure: TikTok didn't exist when I got it.

That spork has been part of my EDC for at least 15 years and I've yet to use it but you never know.

I can't tell by looking at and handling it if it's made from titanium, aluminum, or steel.

Neither could my Crack Scientific Team©®.

I had my Crack Research Team®© drill down to see if they could locate a source but no joy.

FYI, there are so many Crack Teams©® here at boj World HQ©® that hot desking is de rigueur.

But I digress.

I took over the search and located the fabricator of my tool, which turns out to be made of titanium.

His Etsy handle is (was?) ToddtheMaker.

You could look it up.

Alas, he appears to have moved on so you're SOL.

He left a wonderful archive of many other objects he designed and made.

My spork has an integrated bottle opener and two adjacent notches on one side whose function eludes me, though I recall seeing such a feature on Swiss Army knives being billed as a fish hook remover.
