As far as I know, there are two manufacturers that make lexan cutlery sets like this. They both have forks, knives, teaspoons, and another spoon in their sets. One company provides tablespoons, which are much more useful than the soup spoons provided in this set. However, the other difference is when you get the set with the tablespoons, they have squared sharp edges on the end that dig into your hand during use and are very uncomfortable. The square edges can be smoothed with a sander or grinding wheel, and I have done this to a number of sets.
Or, in the past, you could get a set as shown in the picture for this product, that had the round edges and was comfortable to hold, but you got the four worthless soup spoons. Now, Coleman provides the worst of both worlds - they now have square edges and soup spoons. So, since you are going to have to sand the sharp edges down anyway, you might as well find the set with the tablespoons instead of this one.
As far as general durability, lexan cutlery like this is excellent. I don't just use them for camping but everyday use since my family just prefers them to metal forks and spoons. Occasionally a piece will break, but they can last for years even with daily use.
