I hand carved this spoon from solid Black Walnut hardwood. This is a large spoon at approx 12" long with a 2.5" wide bowl. The bowl has a generous depth so it is prefect for all the big cooking/scooping jobs around the kitchen. Plus, since it is solid hardwood it will not scratch your expensive cookware. This spoon can also double as a serving spoon at the dinner table. The smooth handle is substaintial in size for a firm, comfortable grip.
Walnut wood is prized for it's gorgeous deep chocolate brown coloring contrasted by darker growth ring patterns and is definitely one of my favorite woods to work with.
The entire spoon has been sanded to 1200 grit then finished with an food-grade mineral oil/beeswax blend. It has also been conditioned to prevent "fuzzing" when it gets wet.
Care for this spoon is easy. Simply hand wash with warm soapy water, rinse, towel dry well, then apply either mineral oil, lemon oil or walnut oil to keep it looking and feeling new. Done on a regular basis (about once per month) this spoon will look like new for years to come.
