A Spurtle is a traditional Scottish kitchen tool.  These Spurtles are made from interesting sections of two-tone Rowan wood and include a traditional thistle design.


We also handmake Spurtles from  Scottish beech, cherry and elm wood:


Ideal as a wood anniversary, Christmas, or wedding gift or just as an unique and useful utensil for your kitchen.


The spurtle is a wooden Scottish kitchen tool, dating from the fifteenth century, that is used to stir porridge, soups, stews and broths. The theory is that the rod-like shape means that porridge can be stirred without congealing and forming lumps unlike a spoon that would have a dragging effect during stirring, and the low surface area reduces the chances of porridge sticking to the instrument.


Each of these unusual Rowan spurtles has been cut from a section of wood that contains the darker heart wood and the lighter sap wood to give the very unique two tone combination. Each spurtle is unique so wont match the photos exactly but each will contain a combination of both woods to give the two-tone appearance. We included a few group photos so you get a feel of how they look.


These Rowan Spurtles are 10" (26cm) in length.


We finish our spurtles with a tartan ribbon bow, just because it looks nice. We also include an info slip with every spurtle, explaining the history and function of the scottish spurtle (useful if you purchasing it as a gift for someone else).


On this item, several coats of food safe oils have been applied to finish the wood and capture the wonderful colours, which will provide protection for years to come. As with all wooden utensils, they should not be left soaking in water and they should be re-oiled periodically to keep their finish. We recommend our own Anyfink Wood Balm which we have developed especially for Spurtles, Spoons, Boards and more.


The display stand, pans, boards, etc shown in the photos are not included in the sale.
