This is a handy wee utensil to make when you're in the woods, it works like a spoon and a spatula, hence the name! It works very well for both circumstances provided you're not trying to eat soup, and is a very simple carving project
this one is carved from sycamore
you can obviously make them any size or shape you want but I normally make them quite small
it's made with a slight bevel underneath to allow it to be used as a slice or spatula, and to enable it to be angled when scooping, it also needs to be small enough to fit your mouth!!
you could carve one in about 15 minutes and it has a surprising number of uses.
