Honey Drizzler or Baby Teething item

Sometimes our wooden utensils have two distinct uses. Not that they were designed that way, it is more that someone finds a use for something that was not the original intention.

That is definitely the case with out honey drizzlers. Handcrafted out of one piece of teak wood, and hand sanded 5 separate times, they are a wonderful way to get liquid or runny honey out of a jar and onto your toast or plate. No big lumps of honey as you can get with a teaspoon or spoon. Just a nice even spread.

But at a market, I was introduced to a completely different use for the honey drizzler. A mum had a young baby that was teething and she bought one of our honey drizzlers for the baby. Because it was one piece of wood, was long so could not be swallowed, was made of Teak so very hard and was not going to splinter, and because there were no chemicals or lacquers on the wood, it was completely child safe. And the baby was happy to chew it for hours.

I would never have thought of that, but I love that it can be used for more than one purpose. Even if it was not originally intended for that
