I spent some time in the shop last night and made 6 of these spreading knives from a cherry board. Thanks for looking.

Great work. What are the dimensions? Are these like the small cheese spreaders or like the large spatulas to spread cake icing or somewhere in between like for spreading peanut butter on a sandwich? (And whatever size they are I just gave you two new ideas to add to your inventory.) Good luck with the Fall shows.

The dimensions are 8” in length, 1 1/8” in width, 3//8” Thick. The blade portion is about 3.75” in length. These are more for spreading cream cheese, peanut butter, etc. I have tried them on both peanut butter and cream cheese and they work well. Thanks for the additional ideas.
