You got soup? I got a ladle for you! Hand carved with ax and knives from a crooked length of wild cherry, this was made the old fashioned (and proper way) of ladle making. I used the natural bend of the wood fibers to shape the handle and bowl to produce the strongest wooden ladle possible. A nice deep bowl is perfect for dipping a big hearty helping of soup, stew, or whatever you need to scoop. A nice long, stout handle makes it possible to reach even the deepest of pots. Beautiful mix of heartwood and sapwood will age gracefully guaranteeing many generations of use.
Ladle length is 15” long with a 4.0”L x 3.0W X 1” deep bowl. This is a BIG ladle!!!
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. This also gives each handle a special unique shape that fits your hand perfectly. 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.
