Eating spoon carved with Axe & Knife....
Carved from 'Persian Ironwood' or 'Parrotia Persica'. This wood is rare to come by and extremely difficult to carve. The clue's in the name. A beautiful creamy coloured wood with some 'spalting' creating the darker two-tone effect in the bowl.
This spoon has a slightly deeper bowl than my usual eating spoons, and would do well for soups and stews as much as porridge and cereal.
'Persian Ironwood' Eating Spoon 001
These spoons are made for daily use. Treated with care and respct they should last a lifetime.
Handwash only - No Dishwashers!
After a time the spoon may need re-oiling to bring back its shiny good looks.... when fully dry coat with a food safe oil such as rapeseed, flaxseed, hempseed or sunflour oil. Avoid olive oil as it has a tendancy to turn rancid.
Please note as all my woodenware is made entirely by hand there will always be slight differences between spoons, each one is entirely unique.
