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

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. 

Handwash only please.

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

Spoon butta

This is a nice wood conditioner for sure. The listing mentioned it had some scent, but I could not detect any, so I added some of my own clove and orange oil.

Hi Kate. Thanks for the review. The scent of the Spoon Butta - Wood Utensil and Cutting Board comes from its natural ingredients. It does not have a scent specifically added. But your combination with clove and orange oil scents must smell great too!!! Thanks for
sharing. And thanks for supporting local artisans and small businesses.
