    Kitchen Tools - Stainless Steel Handles for Coffee Demitasse Spoons

    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.

    Thank you Franks S,

    There are just one more in my kitchen utensils series for a set small pickle forks. I think this should be the last and have been well appreciated by friends and family.

    I really need a turret lathe or CNC lathe to do any of these in production.

    Regards,
    Paul Jones

    Paul,

    Beautiful addition to your series and agree with Frank. Personally I wouldn't think production runs of these is what they are all about. I really enjoy the craftsmanship and singularity of them...but that is me. Looking forward to the pickle forks. Thanks for sharing these beauties!
