This is another part of my "Kitchen Tool" series for small stainless steel tools I made for my wife and friends.
The following photos include all new stainless handles for demitasse spoons. The smaller-sized spoon is smaller than a teaspoon and is traditionally used for coffee drinks. I made a series of 12 handles for the spoons using 3/8" diameter 303 stainless steel rod. The 3/8" diameter stainless steel rods were reduced to 0.364 diameter before knurling the 21 pitch knurl (by the way I used the Android app Kurling Calculator to calculate the pre-knurling diameter). The 0.052" grooves were machined with a right-hand Nikcole Mini-systems tool holder and carbide inserts. Also, AR Warner makes T15 inserts for this tool holder and I have used these with success.
