    Many from prince bust most "Acquired" from other restaurants and various antique shops and ebay. There is a store that someone posted here that looked like they had a plethora of cool vintage spoons but they never have any up on their website

    Ha. Yeah a coworker of mine staged at WD50 and accidently came back with one of their spoons. Pretty sweet.

    I do not have any fancy hand forged spoon (yet), but my favourite spoon was made by my father more than 15 years ago - I mostly use it to eat Halusky which I proudly cook myself

    Here it is accompanied by a traditional finish pukko and 2 traditional slovakian hand-made wooden cups (we use them for buttermilk)



    And a bit larger photo:



    BTW, these are also 2 of the very few studio photos I have ever taken with my 4x5 (focusing was about 20min each)

    I gotta say I love the Kunz spoons as well. Both sizes. I've been trying for a while to get a damascus one. They are gorgeous.

    Thank you franz. No, my father did just the spoon. But I do love the cups - these are made of a pine wood that grows on the stem of cut pine tree (this takes usually around 10 - 15 years) in the spring (when the tree has lot of 'power' in the roots) and only few pine-stems would produce this so called 'wart wood' (I am not sure that is the correct word) that is suitable for a cup (or bowl if the tree was larger). As this wood grows very slowly (and only on the circumference of the stem - the middle slowly rotens) it is very dense what makes it not only very beautiful, but also strong and suitable for this kind of product. The handles are made of damson wood and are traditional for shepherds (that often made these kind of cups in the past).

    That is such an interesting spoon son. Do you use it daily?

    +1 for kunz spoons.

    I may be the only person crazy enough to pay for the postage to Australia.
    I'm really not comfortable admitting how much it cost!
    To my horror when they arrived my mother in law thought they were lovely salad servers. She does not understand
    After using them to sauce 120 pax plated banquets... There is no going back.
    I am a saucing machine with these spoons.

    Also got one for each of my co-workers engraved with "not just a spoon"
    It's an inside joke... And a very long story.
