    I just bought a knife for 240 dollars and its the most expensive knife I own. I don't think I could justify the spoon right now. Ill stick with the 10 dollar kunz lol

    I'm surprised you didn't find the cheaper ones.

    I'm just kidding you. My utensils in the dwar are the 5$ walmart special for a whole tray. Altho I do love the silver spoons too.

    When I first mentioned the idea of a Damascus spoon years ago I got the same response you just made from just about everyone. It took me over a year to find someone to make me one, another 2+ years after that to talk Hoss into makeing me one. Now the idea of a Damascus spoon is not that crazy or unheard of. Think of it this way, When you use a spoon more then a knife, why not?

    You may have seen my baby's around, but just in case you have not:

    Ariel Salaverria "the 1st Damascus chef tasting spoon"












    The first Spoon Hoss made modeled after the kunz spoon but heat treated to a spring like temper and with a bigger 3TB bowl. You can use the back to pop open oysters.










    I loved Hoss's spoon so much that when he did a run of them I bought a few more. The bubble wrap pattern is sick as hell but I don't know if they were made from the same steel mix as the first one he made me and or if they were spring tempered? I say this because they feel and sound a lot different.



    Maxum had a set of these bad boys up on his sight so I bought them. Don't know ho made them but who ever did the work for him had some very fine skills. Only complaint is that they are "Normal Spoon" size.





    Del made me a few spoons as well and they are amazing works of art, I just don't know what I I'd with that set of photos?

    wow..i'd never buy a mega money spoon..but i wont knock your willingness!! beautiful!

    i recently visited a kitchen store. they had a bunch of crap spoons. but i found one. typical "me", i find the one item that has ZERO info. no scan code, no tag..nothing. the entire staff searched to find out how much to charge me. in the end, they guessed. i was okay with the $15.

    the spoon is an unknown. but the heft is perfect. the bowl is perfect, and the angle of the handle is perfect. it is a basting machine. it skims fat off of sauces perfectly. i use it everyday from cooking duties----->to jabbing it into a bowl of food as a serving spoon.

    i wish i had another one, but like i said..it is unknown in manufacturer or origin.
