Project Information

As a scoutmaster you get to spend a lot of time dealing with wood.. Every once in while i find a piece of wood that's too good to throw in the fire.

some time ago i found a piece of birch with a nice grain structure. So while evaluating the days events i started wittling. With my Opinel carbon folding knife and this other little tool i always keep in my uniform, i made it into this little teaspoon.

I modeled it after an old teaspoon from my grandmothers house. It had booth the curve in the back and the arch in the handle..

So all in all, quick simple and fun to make. No oil and no sanding.

I really like the spoon. The shape is quite lovely - very nicely done.

Great spoon! What exactly is the other little tool? A spoon gouge, what brand and size? I've been wanting to get one and that looks like just the thing for me. Thanks for sharing!

Thank you guys for the feedback.

After doing some research i found out what it's called..
It's a double sided Spoon/hook knife from the Swedish brand Mora. They make a couple of different styles, but for some reason i've always loved the double one the most..
I found the knives they make on an international website if you want to have a closer look:

Good job on the spoon - I hope your scouts were paying attention and learning by your example. When I was a scout we never learned to carve anything useful - only decorative items. I was never good enough to carve a dog that looked like a dog - I have been wanting to try a spoon - I am just waiting for some of my wood to dry after I trimmed the trees and bushes last summer.
