Some spoons I have given as gifts in the past.

Talk to any bushcrafter and the conversation will inevitably lead to the discussion of spoons.  Why this is the case remains a mystery, but I think the act of creation – taking a log from the fire pile, splitting, carving, reducing, imagining the spoon within – I think that has a lot to do with it.

I am almost tempted to mention the spiritual side of this creation and the magic the wood, hands, axe, and crook knife possess – but, hey, they are only spoons.
