The ultimate answer to the question of where to put it, Bambu's 'Give It A Rest' utensils have a small bump on their back (a unique characteristic of how bamboo grows) that keeps the business end from touching counters and stoves.
The 'node' is a specific attribute to bamboo, so these conscious artisans wanted to find a way to build inherent functionality into the design of these utensils by using the node of the bamboo stalk. This patented design elevates the spoon head off the counter, leaving your surfaces splotch-free. No need for unnecessary spoon rests and the like, these spoons cleverly do it.
Made from single pieces of certified organic bamboo, these utensils are hand-shaped, sanded and cleaned, then finished to a satiny feel with a light food-safe oil. Bambu doesn't use typical shiny lacquer coating like many other brands, instead preferring a more safe and natural finish to their tools.
Some other fun features of bamboo? It doesn't impart or absorb flavors and won't scratch cooking surfaces.
Truly, inspired by nature.

Gardening allows us to carve out a piece of true, personalized beauty in our corner of the world. However, many of our garden tools are made with flimsy plastic handles and metal fixtures that rust, bend, or corrode into ugliness. If you’re someone who appreciates aesthetics (which, if you're a gardener, you probably do), that’s not an ideal situation. And if you’re someone who loves our planet, it’s doubly disconcerting. Fortunately, with a greater focus placed on sustainability in our culture, the artisan is making a triumphant return. Featuring Fisher Blacksmithing.
