I made these for my Mountain Man Kit. I needed something a bit more rugged than the usual utensils. I love the Beaver cause they work so hard and are a tough little creaure. We have some nearby and they built a dam and a lodgehouse too. I even swam (snorkelled) with some in the Mad River in Vermont back in the 70s. The momma beaver swam up to me and looked into my facemask, wondering what I was doing there. She uttered a strange sound and she and two beaver kits (young) swam up into their lodge through an underwater entrance. I will never forget that day. Wish I had a Go-Pro camera to film it, but theywere not available back then.

There is nothing like a wet beaver to make your day!

Ah, the rare fork nosed beaver. Even rarer to see the spoon nosed female. :-) Very nice.

I’m thinking John “Liver eating” Johnston would have loved those.

I was just thinking about making another set of these, but turning around the beavers on the other end. So their tales are the fork and spoon. Maybe a prototype tonight. Got to search my wood stash for some nice Birch , Maple, or Hickory .

Have your say...
