[at-l] Titanium versus value

Anklebear makes the observation that the Dollar Store sells nifty long ice
tea spoons, probably for a $1, that should be within a few grams and less
costly than long handled titanium spoons and sporks.
I found similar value issues after purchasing a SnowPeak titanium cook set
with their stove. The $75 pot, lid, silverware set, cutting board and
sierra cup were a lot heavier than similar aluminum ones from REI, Wally
World and elsewhere. Not that long ago, titanium was the pinacle of light
weight and quality - but expensive - gear. It isn't nearly that much of a
fashion statement any more.
We had an earlier thread about obtaining gear assuming no limit to budget
or time. There are lots of options to expensive high quality gear that
compromise on cost, weight and durability - but the compromise may be well
worth the effort.
