While these long, slender spoons are certainly divine for swizzling up an iced tea or julep, they have infinite other long-handled uses in the kitchen. Plus, they look like something out of Ollivander's. Hand-carved from a single piece of olive wood in Kenya-through a terrific Fair Trade program assuring fair pay for artisansa-these pieces present both the subtle marks of hand-craftsmanship and the marvelous smooth finish of true artistry. With natural antibacterial properties, olive wood is extremely hard, strong, and durable, with an exquisite deep graining pattern reminiscent of oil swirls, no two pieces are alike.
Take Care: These are built to last. Hand wash and avoid submerging in water. Occasionally condition the wood with your preferred food-safe wood conditioner (we swear by Old Mill's All Natural Beeswax and Mineral Oil Wood Polish, available right here at The Foundry), being sure to allow enough time for the wood to absorb the oil before its next use.
