Making flatware

So I am thinking of being a maker of flatware. All of the rules that used to tell you how many courses and what you would be served at the dinner.  I guess I love secret signs that you have to  figure out. My goal is not  to re-invent but to play with something that we use everyday (you tell me when a day has gone by when you didn’t use a spoon).

Making Spoons

The Spoon, from the Anglo-Saxon term spon, meaning ”to chip” or “wood chip” was the first eating utensil. The spoon is the safest, most comfortable member of the cutlery set. It is the easiest implement to use – babies start with spoons- and the one with the most versatility, which is the reason why its employment is constantly being restricted (earlier eating habits used them as knives and often in cases where we use forks today)
