Use these long-handled spoons for anything, ice cream sundaes notwithstanding. Each spoon is hand formed in Uganda using sustainably harvested horn from Ankole cattle.

 

8.5" long x 1.5" wide

Handmade in Uganda

This is special because...

Ankole cows are indigenous to Uganda and raised for food. The horn of a mature Ankole can weigh between 900-1600 pounds and span 8 feet, thereby leaving a lot of raw material to produce utilitarian and ornamental goods! Transforming horn into objects of use is an age-old African tradition and begins with a hollowed horn shell, carefully selected and cut to the needed size. The material is then boiled until malleable, allowing it to be flattened, molded or bent into shape. Once cooled and solidified, the creation is cleaned, bleached and sanded up to five times to attain a smooth finish. Finally, it is polished and waxed to bring out unique colorations and striations*.

*Horn is a natural material and varies greatly in color and pattern. Please note your color preference at checkout and we'll do our best to accommodate your request.
