The quality of the craftmanship is admirable. It brings me joy to use it.
Incredibly well crafted, feels great in my hand! It will be a very sad day if I were to ever damage it.
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.
Love how it looks and good to hold.
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.
