Scottish Spurtle

Read our blog post: What is a Spurtle and How do you Use it?

This handmade Artisan Hardwood Scottish Spurtle is a piece of functional art. It's a beautiful, heirloom quality item that's hand carved by an Artisan woodworker in the lovely hamlet of Hemlock, NY, population 556.

This good sized, well made spurtle works wonders for stirring your pots of thick stews, soups and sauces. The sturdy design is strong enough to really get in there and make sure your mixture doesn't stick to the bottom of the pot.

Also works as a muddler or pestle.
