A spork is a hybrid form of cutlery taking the form of a spoon-like shallow scoop with two to four fork-like tines.[1] Spork-like utensils, such as the terrapin fork or ice cream fork,[2] have been manufactured since the late 19th century;[3] patents for spork-like designs date back to at least 1874.The word spork is a portmanteau of spoon and fork.
