To give you a bit of background, I use a metal forming die to shape the spoon bowl, a die set that I create myself. Chef Niloc, the major difficulty in making that spoon was creating the die set. These die sets can take up to four days to make, which is a huge investment of time, but once they are finished can make many spoons. I currently have three die sets, one Kuntz, one roux, and one teaspoon. Spoons with perforations are no problem either.
    Another consideration is the material the Damascus is made from. I use a soft stainless Damascus I make myself, it takes about the same amount of time to make as the AEBL Damascus I make for knives, but with this Damascus I don't have to harden the steel to make it stainless, and using this mix allows me to cut the finishing time in half. This is the main reason I can offer them at the prices I do.
    I do have quite a few paring knives to make still to make, and when I get finished with those, I think it will be time to do some more spoons. I may even add another die design.
    Thanks,
    Del

    Wildboar has been asking for a couple of years for me to do a teaspoon and tablespoon measuring set out of my ss Damascus, maybe this is the year to do it, along with a bunch of other spoons. Now that ive mentioned it, I guess there are my new dies to make.
    I am as excited about this as you guys are, I don't even have one of these for myself. Maybe I can sneak one in for myself this year.
    Thanks,

    The thing with measuring spoons is that a spring temper would be a very useful addition. I think my roux spoon might be a hit for you his time. Does your die allow for a longer spoon?

    It allows for a longer handle, the die is only for forming the bowl.
    Is it mainly in the handle that you would like the springiness? I may be able to work that into the process.
