Lue Brass Various Spoon #18, handcrafted by Japanese metalworker Ruka Kikuchi (nickname Lue).
This is perfect for serving food or vegetables, thanks to its bigger size and the name that it has, for 'various' purposes.
As time progresses you'll find that this spoon will patina and darken as the metal oxidises, also reacting to the natural oils on one's hands. Each is unique, featuring little scratches up-close where the craftsman has been at work.
Measures approx - L 22.5cm x W 5.5cm (scoop) and made to last for many years to come.
Made in Okayama, Japan.
