For an item of American equipment that can qualify as one of the best...



I can't disagree with that at all.  I have one on my key ring.


Called the 'John Wayne' in the Marines.  I, too, still have one on my key ring.  The first one I picked up in 1975, it's almost spread flat.



A similar device in the Australian Defence Force (that I first met back in 1970) is called a FRED:  It has a spoon on the end, and the official title is 'Field Ration Eating Device'.  The unofficial nomenclature is Fucking Ridiculous Eating Device.
