Scale up and get started on a larger coffee scoop. Whittle something that is pleasingly ergonomic to grip, will measure out just the right quantity of coffee, and is smooth as smooth can be.
Kits contain a wood block to carve from, three grades of sand paper, and beeswax and cloth. The kits were sourced in Japan. We provide a translation of the instructions and our own tips for successful whittling.
A knife is not included as part of the kit. A standard penknife is sufficient, an Opinel penknife is available here, or try a higonokami here. Please be careful - whittling should not be a contact sport!
