Hand carved ebonised oak scoop. A unique scoop perfect for measuring out your freshly ground coffee beans but equally good for measuring out seeds, herbs, flour or spices. The ebonised oak scoop is hand carved in our Norfolk workshop and made from sustainable and locally sourced oak and finished with food safe oil.
Ebonising is the effect of darkening or blackening a naturally lighter coloured wood to appear more like ebony wood (as dark/black as possible). Applying a mixture of vinegar and aged wire wool to the wood creates a natural reaction with the tannins creating a dark black, like ebony, while still allowing the wood grain to show through.
To care for your scoop wash by hand and dry thoroughly. We recommended oiling the scoop every 2-3 months to revive the wood and help it regain its natural texture using flax seed oil or wood balm.
