The hard plastic is a custom polypropylene plastic, and the "rubber" is actually a special FDA food-safe elastomer that's specially designed to resist staining, scratching, and tearing. During the molding process the two materials bond together at a molecular level for an incredibly strong bond. It's similar to the construction of a fancy rubber-grip toothbrush.
It's safe for boiling water and dishwashers, but it's not intended for ultra high-temp uses like scraping a hot pan.
Morsel weighs about 0.8 ounces, or about 23 grams.
Have no fear! Morsel was designed to scrape in both directions, clockwise and counter-clockwise, so it actually works pretty well with your left hand! We actually debated, as right handers, which direction the spoon should point - because it works so well both ways!
Morsel is pretty darn tough, but it's still plastic. We made Morsel thicker and stronger than other camping utensils, because we were sick of breaking handles, but it's still not invincible. If you're literally trying to break Morsel, you'll probably succeed. If you're using it like a utensil, it should last for many, many years.
Morsel is 100% Made in the USA! Morsel Sporks are manufactured in California, and our packaging is manufactured in Oregon.
We stand behind Morsel because we designed it to last a lifetime. If your Morsel breaks under normal usage, let us know and we'll make it right.
