This is a curvy wooden spoon for stirring and serving sauce. It will work for either a right or left hander. Shipping on this item is free till the end of August on all orders to the U.S and Canada. It is 8 3/4 inches long and 1 3/4 inches wide. This is not a large spoon. 'The Apples in the photo are small, 2 inches in diameter. This spoon is more for serving salsa or sauces. The Plum wood is creamy orange with darker grain lines. The bowl is fairly deep, for serving a nice sauce. Plum wood is hard and very fine grained and will get darker over time like its cousin Cherry. I got the wood from a tree that blew down last year in the town of Center, Colorado. Finished with beeswax and mineral oil.
This utensil is "pre-washed" so to speak. The grain has been raised with water during the finishing process to remove any loose fiber ends so the spoon will remain smooth after you use it.
Care is easy, just wash in hot soapy water, towel dry, and apply some mineral oil or walnut oil every couple of weeks or you can buy some of our spoon oil finish which is Beeswax and mineral oil. A 4 oz. jar lasts for a long time and it will help to keep your spoon looking and feeling good for many years.
