Yes, I know, you can buy a cooking spoon from any old shop for around one pound (£1). So why would you spend more on a hand carved spoon? I don’t know. All that I do know is that, if you’re anything like me, the hand carved spoon will be the one you reach for again, and again. Thus, it will mature into your spoon; one that’s almost like an extension of your hand. I design these spoons with a little “crank”, or angle between the bowl and the handle. This means that the spoon will transition from stove to table. It’s great at stirring, and can be used to dollop food into bowls too.
This spoon comes in two variations – “Long” which will be perfect for most everyday cooking needs, and “Longer” which will cope with bigger pots, pans and meals.
The spoon also comes with options for “ears”. These make the spoon right-handed (with the pointed corner on the right of the spoon bowl), left-handed (with the pointed corner on the left of the spoon bowl), or rounded – with a totally rounded tip to the bowl.
I always work with “found” wood: Although the shape of the spoon remains similar – the wood will always be unique.
