Blackthorn is one of my very favorite woods to carve and I always get a little bit excited when I get my hands on a nice piece. To get the dark reds hues and deep browns you need fairly large blackthorn, old and knarly and often knotty. This tough wood takes a super clean cut and dries very hard making it excellent for eating spoons.

    Blackthorn eating spoon #16

    Blackthorn eating spoon #16

    Length: 18cm (7 inches)
    Bowl width: 4.3cm
    Bowl length: 5.5cm
    Finish: hemp seed oil

    This blackthorn spoon has an asymmertic bowl making suitable for right handers only. I’ts a tough little spoon being made entirely from heartwood and there’s some lovely dark red tones in handle as well as the bowl. Note that over time the red will most likely fade to a dark brown but it’ll still be gorgeous. It’s a bit cheaper than most of my other blackthorn spoons as it was squeezed out of a shallower piece of wood and has a little less crank than usual.
