This is a beautiful hand carved wild cherry wood eating spoon. This is not common wild cherry! Perfect for eating your favorite yogurt, ice cream, oatmeal or anything else you need to scoop. Thick handle fits the hand perfect and is light but strong! Nicely curved to fit the mouth perfectly no matter what your eating. The carving technique used for this spoon gives it the terrific touch of sapwood/heartwood contrast that makes this spoon so unique. The knotted bowl just adds to the character and does not make it weak!
Spoon measures 7" overall with a 2"L by 1.5"W bowl.
All my spoons are made by using traditional spoon making methods. Starting with fresh wood, I use nothing but ax, draw knife, straight knife and hook knife. Since no saws are used, the wood is cut with the fibers of the wood, making a much stronger spoon and gives a smooth knife surface. A paste of beeswax, mineral oil and walnut oil is applied then each spoon is burnished with a deer antler to a hard smooth finish. Each of my spoons are one of a kind unique and are heirloom quality guaranteed to last a lifetime!
DO NOT wash the spoon in the dishwasher. Hand washing only!
Apply mineral or walnut oil to the spoon every few months to restore its original shine.
