Handmade Wood Spurtle

This rustic styled Handmade Wood Spurtle is made in the USA and designed for stirring deep pots of soups and sauces. This version is a "Couthie Spurtle" which doubles as a slender spatula and all purpose tool. It has a charming design with a chiseled handle that's easy to grip and feels good in your hand. 

These beautiful Handmade Wood Spurtles make cherished gifts and family heirlooms.

What is a Spurtle? Spurtles date back to fifteenth century Scotland and are kitchen tools used to stir thick porridge, soup and stews. They come in a range of styles and sizes and tend to be made of wood.

Custom has it that spurtles should be used with the right hand to stir in a clockwise direction.

Each piece is hand chiseled and shaped from raw, ethically harvested urban lumber and finished with organic olive oil and beeswax.

Don't forget to get some Original Fabulous Spoon Butta to help maintain your treasured wood kitchenware.

“Urban Lumber” is wood that has been harvested from residential areas, business complexes, parks and areas being cleared for development. If not used, it may end up as firewood, be chipped for mulch or even end up in landfills.

Due to the nature of each item being individually handmade, variations will occur with wood grain and appearance from those pictured. Each one is unique and beautiful. 

Size: Length 15", Width 2 1/2". Sizes are approximate.

Hi Sandy. It's great to hear that you 'love' your Handmade Wood Meat Fork and other items from LocalWe. Enjoy! Thanks for the review and for supporting local artisans and small businesses.

Very nice utensil

Well made spurtle. Good for many uses. Has a sharp edge for scraping. One drawback is the huge size. This is good for large pots of food. However, for those of us with smaller families, it is too large for everyday use. I have ordered a smaller one for my use.

Thanks for your review and feedback California Buyer. The spurtle is larger than some of our other utensils. But they vary in size a bit since they are handmade. We can sometimes accommodate a special request for either a larger or smaller size. Let us know if you would like to exchange your piece for a smaller one. Thanks too for supporting local artisans and small businesses. It makes a big difference.
