Blackthorn eating spoon #18


Length: 17cm (6 3/4 inches)
Bowl width: 4.3cm
Bowl length: 6cm
Finish: hemp seed oil

This blackthorn spoon has a symmertic bowl making suitable for left or right handers. It’s an exceptionally beautiful piece of blackthorn heartwood with lots of lovely dark red tones in handle and deep dark brown hoops in the bowl. Note that over time the red will most likely fade to a dark brown but it’ll still be gorgeous. Blackthorn is prunus family like plum and damson and shares the same exceptional colours. It usually grows as a prickly shrub on scrub land and in hedges and it’s rare to get large enough pieces to carve like this entirely from the heartwood. This was from Llangrannog in west Wales where an overgrown lane side was cleared back to allow traffic to pass more easily.
