This is a one of a kind 11" apricot wooden spoon/saute. It came from an apricot tree in my backyard that got blown over during a storm. When cutting it up for removal I was amazed at the beauty of the wood. There is a place in the handle what was a worm hole, I think it just adds to it's uniqueness. This spoon is finished with walnut oil and then a walnut oil and bees wax mixture. Please do not let soak in dishwater or place in dishwasher. Hand was only. Care for your spoon by applying oil on it from time to time. You can use walnut oil, tung oil, coconut oil, raw linseed oil or food grade mineral oil, rub in with your hands and let set for a time, wipe off excess with soft cloth. Proper care will make your spoons last for years. Thank you for your purchase, I hope you get as much enjoyment using it as I had making it.
