Spalted Birch Kitchen Spoon

I reckon that the birch wood in this spoon has spalted about a much as is possile without losing physical integrity. It is very light and the oxidised walnut oil has stabilised the wood to some degree but I imagine this spoon would wear relatively quickly if used often in the kitchen. Perhaps this is a spoon more for looking at!
