Beautifully done new style absinthe spoon
ITEM: Obsello Absinthe Spoon
ITEM TYPE: Spoon, Absinthe
COST: € 24.00(Plus Shipping)
Overview: Branded spoon made for Obsello Absinthe
Appearance: Stamped from 1.5 mm food grade stainless steel and mirror polished. About 5 1/2 inches long, 1 3/8 inches wide,”Obsello” in script with Art Nouveau elements. Comes in fitted wooden box, or in some cases a leather holster.
First Impression: Decently made, long enough to span almost any absinthe glass .
Testing: Fits a lot of glasses, completely flat design does not have the notches in the stem like some (to hold the spoon on the rim) nor raised edges to hold sugar cube but these are minor stylistic points. . .Easy and straight-forward to wash and dry or if you are carrying it out you can always use a alcohol wipe before putting it back in its box if you don’t want to run to the bathroom and give it a quick rinse. No plating to react in a drink, scratch, or wear off- pretty much a forever and low maintenance spoon.
Final Thoughts: Nicely made, lack of notch and length make it easy to use on any glass. Decorative and protecticve wooden case keeps it safe and unbent. Downside is it is a bit pricey compared to the mass produced junk out there – but you get what you pay for in either case- your choice.
