Wow ... I just bought a fork & spoon that look exactly like the ones Sophia is holding. These things are huge, 39'' long and the spoon is 8-5/8" wide. I've been all over the Internet and haven't found anything comparable. They are very old and extremely well-carved. The wood is black, and they are in excellent shape. I think I'll eBay them and see what they'll bring.

Always remember, that the true use of these giant forks and spoons is for making Wahine Salad.





Real tiki aficionados always use their collectibles for their intended purpose - not just for display. So go have fun!

My friend is collecting them so he doesn't have to take down the hideous wall paper in his kitchen. One day he hopes to have just a wall of forks and spoons. The big ones are 5-6 feet tall!!!

Hey Kelly

I have a pair I rescued at the Salvation Army last year. You can have them, I have no need to keep them. I will take a photo later and post them. I'll give them to you next time I see you if you want them.

Jen

Always remember..... Spooning leads to forking.

I appreciate this thread, because I always wondered what is up with these?

I constantly run across them in my thrifting, and have yet to give in and buy some. Not that I don't find them cool, but if found tiki mugs at the fork/spoon rate, I would have a 24 hour grin.

In order I constantly find and pass on:

1) White Buddha/Geisha/Ninja mugs. Debate on Poly-pop tikiness yet?

2) Wooden fork and spoons

3) Those brown Kahlua double decker things

I agree with Duke...those Easter Island ancestor figure inspired untensils are the coolest ones I've seen. I wouldn't mind stumbling across some of those in the salvation army.

I noticed that no one mentioned that one of the reasons so many of these, and the monkeypod wooden tiki mugs, show up in thrift stores on the mainland is that they were available in North American stores in the late 60s and 70s as well. Here's an ad from the 1974 Canadian Sears Wishbook...



So far I've resisted the temptation to pick up any of the dozens I've seen over the years!
