Either go to a thrift store or get some plastic ones.

In all my trips, though, I've never bothered to bring cutlery (besides a Swiss Army knife) with me.

Don't spend so much money on "travel things"!!! Just bring a fork and a spoon from home and you'll do fine!

One good suggestion would be to use a hack saw to cut the knives, spatula, and other cutlery down to a good size to fit in you pack without poking a hole in the side of your pack. That is of course if you are going to be on the road long enough to need cutlery.

Those look like a bunch of improvised weapons confiscated from a prison.
