Birch Kitchen Spoon
Hand carved birch kitchen or serving spoon. 290mm L and 60x70mm bowl. Finished in foodsafe flaxseed oil.
Yes, the handle is quite strong enough, as with all of my spoons this one is carved from wood which has been "cleft" so that the grain runs right down the length of it.
Just wash in warm soapy water, or brush under running cold tap, rinse and immediately towel dry (not dishwasher safe). To rejuvenate the wood once or twice a year wipe on a generous coat of mineral, flaxseed/linseed oil (NOT boiled linseed), tung or walnut oil. Let soak overnight before polishing off any excess. Do not use vegetable oil it will become rancid.
