Simple Cherry Spatula
Inspired by the shapes of Japanese utensils, this Spatula is perfect for frying and flipping food around! With a robust body and tapered tip it is both heavy duty and nimble around the pan 

The hollowing marks are still evident in the bowl giving these a textured and undeniably wonderful handmade feel.

The spoon has been finished with Tung Oil

This cherry spatula was carved from a cherry tree which was planted by Tim Hutton the founder of the Wild Circle Retreat 25 years ago, on his beautiful small holding by the river camel on Bodmin moor. 

The woodland he planted was a mixture of oak, chestnut and some quicker growing cherry trees which recently needed to be thinned out so as to create some light in the canopy for the slower growing chestnuts to come up

This spatula is part of a range of cooking spoons all available in my shop. You can buy the full set here

Spatula Care:
This spatula is designed to be cooked with and well used - don't be afraid to use it on a daily basis! The only thing to avoid is putting it in the dishwasher, or leaving it to soak in the washing up bowl.

I always make sure my utensils are bone dry before putting them away in the drawer.

To give the spatula a new lease of life from time to time you can add a coat of Tung oil, flax oil, walnut oil (careful of nut allergies) or linseed oil, but this is not essential.
