This is a deluxe ice cream scoop with a hand turned ambrosia maple handle. Constructed from 304 stainless steel, this heavy-duty scoop features a hawk bill point designed to cut through the hardest of ice creams. This is a great gift for your ice cream lovers. Ambrosia Maple is a soft maple which is host to a variety of greyish-blue to brown streaks that are caused by an infestation of the ambrosia beetle. The beetle burrows into the tree and leaves a fungus in its path, which is what causes the discoloration in the wood and creates a very unique pattern in each piece. The scoop measures 8 ½” long, the scoop is about 2” wide and the handle is about 1 ½ at the widest diameter. Multiple coats of wipe-on varnish have been applied for durability. The finish is completely food safe. If cleaning is required, hand wash with mild detergent, rinse and dry.
