A fantastic coffee measure spoon handmade by Japanese metalworker Ruka Kikuchi (nickname Lue).  This is perfect for measuring out loose leaf tea or coffee. He makes the spoons by hammering a form for the scoop and cutting a long strip for the handle, attaching them together by welding. 

SIZE: 5.25 inches, measures 2 tablespoons 

MATERIAL: Hand Forged Brass

ORIGIN: Japan

CARE: Over time, this piece will patina and darken as the metal oxidizes, also reacting to the natural oils from one’s hands. For daily care, wash gently after use and wipe away water.

ABOUT: Ruka Kikuchi (also known by his nickname, LUE) makes functional and modern brass utensils by hand in his studio in Setouchi. Lue makes objects that cooperate with the lives of ordinary people, hoping that every time one of his items is picked up and used it brings great pleasure and will last for many years.
