    I would possibly be interested in a serving spoon/fork set and a gravy ladle.

If you want the stainless thats fine but at this point I would recommend the carbon.
    As far as the shape goes the sky is the limit, and i do agree that having the split on the bottom of the handle large snough that you can clean in there is a good idea. The combination etch is also a good idea, and no problem there.
    Thanks,

    Oh, interesting! i didnt even think about carbon vs ss for this, but it makes sense: as carbon is going.to be both easier to work / shape should also be tougher / tolerate getting banged around against metal pans and grills better. i do most of my cooking in a forged iron pan anyway, so having a carbon steel spatula makes the OCD part of my brain all happy.

    What carbon steel(s) are you thinking of? Grain/carbide refinement would be far less important than springyness and toughness. Reactivity / patina stability would also be a consideration. W2? O1? L-6? I dunno; you're the steel expert.

    Justin,
    I would use the O-1 and L-6 mix that I am most familiar with. I can temper it back so that it is springy and not brittle at all.
    This mix patinas easily, but once formed the patina is stable, and since I will be doing the etching it will be pre-patinaed.

    Taylor, A gravy ladle? now there is a challenge, I love it!!!

    How about grapefruit spoons? Here are two pictures of a couple of grapefruit spoons that I have, they have to be very old.

    I think the design is perfect for getting the sections out of half a grapefruit. I have never see another design that compares to these, they have the right taper.

    They are marked, "Pat.Nov.29,1910 WM Rogers & Son AA".
