Does not look like a first attempt. And embarrassingly so, it takes me longer than that. Good work!

It’s very nice! It looks very comfortable to hold too. Would you mind divulging your secrets? I’m very impressed that it took an hour to make… dumbfounded even!

This is a very nice spoon. You’ve done a fine job on it.
