James Ruther: Maker of Spoons

James Ruther is a diverse man.  Day job, working for the Edison company, he’s also quite an authority on knives and knife-sharpening, as well as several other bushcraft skills.  One day, after we both finished a class about outdoor survival skills in the foothills of Pasadena, Ruther showed me a wooden spoon.

“That’s nice,” I said.  I liked it, and it looked a bit different from the many wooden spoons I’ve seen over the years at thrift stores and novelty stores.

“Yeah, and I made this one,” he continued.

“You made it,”? I replied, looking again more closely at the spoon, turning it over in my hands.
