This spoon is my take on a Japanese spoon design I was inspired to make during the years I have been living partially in Japan.
The design is also very reminiscent of First Nations spoons I saw in museums in Canada, and thus represents a keel-less spoon style made by many cultures. I enjoy using this type myself very much!
Every meal becomes a treat using your own hand carved spoon!
I harvested the Japanese cherry, Sakura, for this spoon next to a Shinto shrine in the Mountains of Munakata, Kyushu, after it was felled by a Taifun storm.
Every spoon I make is handcarved with axe and knives, keeping the best shapes for comfort, beauty and strength in mind, I learned and tested over years.
Treat yourself to your own spoon today!
Please don´t hesitate asking any questions!
Oriental Spoon from Japanese Sakura
I had only a handful of spoons cracking on me in several years and I am glad I haven´t had a case in a while. If a spoon happens to crack down the road, it is part of the woods behavior. They are made and designed to avoid that though!
The spoons are sturdy and take proper use for decades, but I don´t refund spoons breaking due to abuse or improper care.
I ship insured.
That means higher shipping fees but peace of mind for you and me.
I don´t take responsibility for shipped items after I send them off.
Anything can be returned to me, if it is in its original state. I don´t refund shipping costs though.
I am not liable for anything you chose to do with my products! Just saying...
Now to more enjoyable stuff ´n´ things....
Your spoon/bowl/kuksa is finished with several layers of raw linseed oil, which builds up an internal and external hardened layer. It protects the wood from moisture and thus warping, decaying and cracking.
You can wash all the products using warm water and dish soap, followed by drying them off using a kitchen towel.
Please don´t soak them nor put them in the dishwasher though!
Over time a dark patina will form on the surface, which is normal and protective!
Maintenence is always key to long life and prelonged beauty of everything, so you can keep applying some food safe oil to your wooden products every once in a blue moon and the wood will thank you showing lovely colors and matured looks.
