Hand forged spatula with spring handle. The shaft is made from 3/8 square steel for strength and durability. It is then hand twisted into a reverse twist for a unique and beautiful design. The blade is cut from flat sheet metal and hand riveted to the shaft using 3 rivets so that you never have to worry about the blade coming loose. All of the metal surfaces are coated with bee’s wax while hot to give then a protective coating and a pleasing appearance. The spring handle is welded to the end of the shaft. There will be some discoloration of the spring due to the heat from the weld. It is highly recommended that all metal surfaces receive a coat of food grade oil after using to prevent rust. Items are handmade and will vary from item to item.
