I also have lost expensive titanium sporks. I now tie a short florescent cord on the end and have not lost it yet! You could also paint the handle with a florescent paint. I also have the spoon-fork set but do not use it. The titanium utensils were given to me as gifts. I would never pay the price for them. Actually a spoon is really small and you do not gain much by the expensive titanium kind. I also have several cheap light spoons that work just as well.
