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.

Made in: Rock Island, IL

Lead time: 1 to 3 days

Sadly, disappointed
Thanks for the review and feedback Amy on the Handmade Wood Spurtle. These items are more rustic and not as finely finished as the work from some of our other makers. The style maintains more individuality between the pieces and more of the marks of the carver. Sorry that the item did not meet your expectations. We will reach out to you with information on how to return them.
