You are not a clone, you’re unique. I know I am! Yet most Spoons are factory made. Clones. Treat yourself to a bespoke tool, whittled, cutled, mongered and explained by a Monger. Live a little.
Jack is an old word for thief. And the Daws have been renowned for nicking trinkets and such like. People who collect things also seem, to me, to be manically or obsessively acquisitive. But some people cannot help themselves and even collect ... spoons!
It's amazing what happens when a piece of wood decides to do its own thing. One minute it's going to be one shape - and then by an amazing fluke, it turns into a whale! This can be because the axe slips, the attention wanders or the grain takes the knife. So the whittler and their tools plus the wood and its spirit merge, allowing a design to e-merge.
Using a spoon is a mark of intelligence. Prisoners escaped from Alcatraz by digging their way out with spoons and even used them as tiny paddles on their way across the Bay. This spoon will specifically not survive hacking through a wall and so is excellent for use in prisons.
I am old enough to be part of what you would call history. Also bald, definitely a man (therefor often wrong). So if I’ve managed to offend you, and you consider that a bad thing - do say. It wasn’t intentional. Please advise. About a spoon, or me, as you wish. Or you, if you are a minority of more than one.
