This beautiful hand carved plum wood serving spoon is perfect for dishing out potatoes, veggies, or casseroles during your next meal for family or friends. Unlike cooking/stirring spoons which have straight handles, this spoon is taken from wood that has a natural curve so it bends nicely (crank in spoon talk) to make getting food out of a bowl easier. Carved in the traditional cawl spoon style (cawl is a type of thick stew/soup in Wales), it has a generous round bowl that dips and serves from any angle. Plum wood is very dense and strong, and the grain patterns are terrific that will only darken with age.
Spoon measures 13" overall with a 3.0" diameter 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.
