This ingenious utensil is the creation of Tom Littledeer, an inventor and master woodworker whose efficient kitchen tools echo the simple, graceful shapes of his world-renowned canoe paddles. Perfect for folding, mixing and stirring dry ingredients and batters, this handcrafted wooden baking oar is equally useful for scraping your mixing bowl and serving your home-baked creations. Ergonomically designed wooden baking oar is offered in two different designs for right- or left-handed users. Handcrafted from a single piece of solid North American maple-a durable, bacteria-resistant hardwood that's ideal for culinary use. Meticulously hand-shaped and sanded for a perfectly smooth finish. Safe for use with nonstick finishes, glass and porcelain. Heirloom-quality tool will provide many years of service. Variations in the wood make each tool unique. Made in Canada by Littledeer-a small, family-owned company known for exquisite craftsmanship and eco-friendly practices.
