In the Finnish vocabulary: I wonder if there is a word for this kitchen eating utensil or if its something just unique to the English language. The word is spork (it’s combination of a spoon and a fork).

The mighty google informs me that a spork is simply called a “lusikkahaarukka” in Finnish! xD Thanks for your question, that was interesting to find out!
