KARS9 Afghan Vintage wooden spoon. Very worn. $45. End of handle carved with unusual notches and curves. Rim and neck of handle both show signs of wear. Length 30cm, width at widest part 5.5cm. Weight 40 gms. Growing up with a father who was a pioneer in the NZ timber industry, and a mother who can make anything grow, it's hardly surprising that Janet grew up loving trees and all things wood! An art school tutor's wedding gift of carved wooden spoons and spurtles set the stage for a lifelong love of spoons from all around the world. Add to that our love of exploring other cuisines, and it makes sense that we'd end up collecting their cooking tools too!
All our beautiful carved wooden spoons have been handpicked, for their shape, design, carved detailing (where present) and how they feel when you hold them. They're beautifully balanced too! Most are worn smooth with use, but some show wear on the spoon rim or handle through years or decades of use - if so, we'll mention that. We do NOT recommend using them for your own cooking too, given their long history - but they make an amazing gift for yourself, your family, or a friend who loves cooking. Each one comes with one of our favourite Afghan recipes, to add to the mood!
