    Hand crafted Coffee Measure by artisan wood carver Ishii Koji

    It's back! We are so pleased to announce that we can share Ishii-san's stunning work with you once again.

    Carefully hand carved one by one from a single piece of wood; the wood carver Ishii-san puts life into each and every spoon so that it accommodates well into the user’s hands in no time.

    Made from "cherry" wood, with individual characteristics, colors and grain at its finest as a measuring spoon.

    Maintenance Tips

    Since it is handmade, the sizes may differ and it may change its size from environmental changes. It may have streaks that exist naturally. They are dipped in oil for the final touch to protect the surface without disabling it to breathe unlike application of urethane or varnish. With this finish, it needs careful attention with water since it may leave stains if it is left in contact with water for too long. When washing, please dry as soon as possible and avoid sitting in water. When the spoons turn white due to dryness, apply some oil for recovery. When left under the sunlight, it could crack or deform so it is advised to be placed in an airy space.

In search for life as a creator, he studied wood craft full-time and that is when he found his life work as a wood tableware craftsman. Ishii-san has great passion for creating wooden tableware that encourages a human-to-wood contact within daily lives.

    Magnificent piece of craftsmanship

    Simple, yet impressive. I wouldn't have thought a coffee spoon would be worth writing about.
    Well, here I am, because I am absolutely stunned with how it took my every day coffee making to a whole new level.
    Whenever I use it to measure my coffee it makes me think of the work that was put into creating this balanced piece of art.
    The wood feels just right, like a perfect companion to the product it measures. It is lightweight, looking good and easy to maintain.

    I would imagine only highly-skilled artisans can craft this spoon.

    It cutely resembles the traditional Japanese ladle, which usually placed in front of shrine or temple for cleaning for visitors.

    The length of the spoon is great. The spoon is perfectly circle and the handle is reasonably sized. Not too large that would feel uncomfortable, but not too small that would easily crack. Also true for the very thin bottom.

    I believe a lots of thoughts have been put into its design with a lots of trial and error with different thicknesses of the handle or bottom, so they won't crack during production or daily use.

    Although this spoon is considerably expensive, I really appreciate the effort Ishii Koji-san put into this small spoon and it well worth it. It's a masterpiece.

    I have been using it everyday. Once I started to use it, I can’t use any other coffee measurement for the beans. I really love it for the handle is long and you can go deep into the coffee carrister easily.
