If you have ever been in the forest WITHOUT a spoon, DON’T PANIC! Here’s a quick little tip you will enjoy and it doesn’t require a specialized carving knife…
What I have done here is simply carved 2 sticks at opposing angles and then lashed together with para-cord for an almost-instant wilderness spoon! (This is a fun one to try with the kids, too.)
The spoon pictured below was crafted from a straight branch using only sharp pocket knife and a length of cordage.
No spoon or specialty knife needed!
I cut a straight sapling into 2 equal length pieces about 6″ in length and rounded over one end.
The dished end or “spoon” end is created by making angle cuts on the other ends of the 2 sticks.
Lash the 2 sticks together tightly and turn the angled cuts so that they now create a inward facing dish/scoop!
You can refine this simple project or make it as elaborate as you wish.
Have fun with it!
