Apothecary Spoons

Apothecary spoons are long, slim-handled spoons with a short, round bowl. They are available in maple, koa, and alder (alder coming soon).

Hawaiian Koa.

Hawaiian Koa.

Koa

Aloha, I am an apothecary spoon made from solid Hawaiian Koa. Koa is a rare hardwood found only in Hawaii. I have a fairly tight grain and practically glow in shades of red and gold. I am arguably one of the most spectacular wood varieties in the world. I can add a little aloha spirit to your magic potions, your bubble bath, or your lemonade. I clean easily and as you can see, I shine up real nicely with just a touch of mineral oil.

Maple

I am an apothecary spoon made from solid maple. While we aren’t as pretty and shiny as our koa version, we’re hella useful and strong. I range in color from light cream and blond to a dark greyish brown.

Alder

Alder

I am an apothecary spoon. I am made from alder. I am lighter in weight than koa or maple, and I tend to be just a bit softer so I may show dents and dings more easily. Some say this gives me character. I also tend to be brighter and redder than maple, but not nearly as showy as koa. But I’m still a delight to behold.

HIckory

I am an apothecary spoon. I am made from hickory. I have a light, pleasant aroma and am most commonly used in axe and hammer handles, baseball bats, and chipped for use in smoking meat. I am very strong and durable and resist splitting. I am also heavy for my size, but you would never know just from looking at me.
