Do you love your wooden spoon? This humble fine-grained hardwood spatula might be your new main squeeze. Hand-turned and carved on holy Miyajima Island where wood from Japanese Mulberry trees, called Shimakuwa ("island wood"), has long been celebrated for its beauty, strength, and gorgeous grain. Mulberry craftsmen from the island have a centuries-old history going back to making these same types of objects for emperors. This sweet, simple tool is naturally hydrophobic and pleasingly smooth to the touch so this stays cleaner and fresher than your standard old spoon while the slender, tapered, slightly "sharp" flat edge makes it our go-to for everything from sweating mirepoix to executing perfect scrambled eggs. It's also friendly with non-stick pans and all clads. Put a little loop through the hole in the handle and keep it close at hand in the kitchen. 12".
