The spork is a portmanteau word combining spoon and fork.
A spork or a foon is a hybrid form of cutlery taking the form of a spoon-like shallow scoop
Spork-like utensils, such as the terrapin fork or ice cream fork, have been
manufactured since the late 19th century.
Patterns for spork-like designs date back to at least 1874.
Justice Neuberger wrote: "I accept that the word Spork involves a clever idea of making a single word by eliding beginning of the word spoon and the end of the word fork."
