I used to haul a 20oz bottle of Mountain Dew Code Red with me everywhere. It was full of Serpis.

I think it tastes better out of a paper cup. Or a flask. Or right out the bottle.

Prissies who are $250 poorer every time they buy a vintage Pontarlier absinthe glass that has never come in contact with spikey Goth spoons -- and never will.

Modern schopp glasses are a different story. They just beg to be scratched.

Aren't those prices a bit steep? These are all stamped metal like the SC spoons. But the designs are very nice indeed. I like the rondes.

That's why you do what Vera does and use your plastic supersize soda cup from Whataburger.

Sheesh, buncha prissies.

A couple of those spoons would scratch a glass to shreds, though.

Oooh, Chev, these are lovely! Except the skull/vampire looking one.. that's just goofy... I don't want my sugared water trickling through some dead dude's nostrils. Yeeech.

An exchange sounds good. Save your cash for the vintage absinthe bottle :-)

Humm, nice. Would be better if it was silver plated but nice.

I like the cross and the round spoons.

Maybe I should try to pay them a visit (It's a 1.5h car ride from my place...). Maybe I could exchange one for a sample of Moonman's... who knows ?

I once got an antic spoon that was so cheap it could almost bend if the wind was to strong. Worst than SC's spoons. I got rid of it by giving it as a birthday present to a friend (the guy was willing to pay 20us$ for that piece of shit but it was his birthday so I just gave it to him...). I guess I'm not a real collector.

Ah, but the melon baller doesn't REQUIRE technique! Let's face it, in the stressful situation of hunting for dinner, one doesn't always have time for TECHNIQUE!

I, of course, learned about the melon baller from "Silence of the Lambs III: Gladiator."

(If you're too drunk to get it, say it out loud.)

Well, you just need technique. If you must go for the chest, slide it in between the ribs, but a slash to the jugular is much more effective if you've sharpened the full edge of the SC spoon beforehand.

My cheap SC spoon BENT when I tried to put someone in a grave with it. The spork was much more effective, as was a chopstick AND a melon baller.

See what happens when you buy flatware instead of silverplate?

But for inflicting the wound that puts the person in the grave? Unbeatable!

Smack, soup? Try digging a grave. Crappiest shovels EVER.

They do work well as shoe horns, though...

Absinthe spoons don't work so hot for cooking heroin though...

most absinthe spoons were made to hang out in cafés and bistros where they would be abused, broken and stolen...hence, cheap and plain...

I abuse/misuse my small collection of antique bon bon spoons as absinthe spoons. They're just sooo much prettier...

But Chev, I think you've answered your own question. Absinthe spoons were never meant as showy society trinkets or heirlooms...
