This is one of my hand forged coffee measuring scoops, made by me, from Copper and Stainless Steel.  This one I call a Waffle Scoop because of the texture I applied to the handle. The last photo shows how all my scoops start, the raw materials from which I hand forge each individual one-of-a-kind scoop.  This one is a chunky one. The copper I used starts as a 1/8" thick blank and the stainless handle was 1/4" thick.  I love the weight of it and the substantial feeling you get in the hand.  I hand textured the outside of the bowl and hand dimpled the inside and it looks awesome!  This product will last forever and it is very likely that the person who inherits it, many generations forward, won't have a clue what it is for, so be sure to pass on that 1 tablespoon of coffee equals one good cup!  These scoops take me approximately 4+ hours to make.  I cut out the copper disc by hand (sometimes when available starting with a pre cut blank).  I pound it into a bowl, texture as desired as polish as required.  I usually have to anneal the copper by heating it to red hot and then quenching it in water so that it is soft enough to forge and work cold, often up to 3 times. Then I hand forge the stainless steel handle hot, right out of the forge, on my anvil.  The handle patterns vary and may be accomplished with tools I have made for the purpose, or with different styles of hammers that I use.  Next I go to the belt grinder and finalize the handle design I have in mind.  Next I go back to the forge to final forge and fit the end that attaches to the bowl, this is a crucial part and often requires minute adjustments for a good match-up.  Next I drill both the handle and bowl and using either heavy copper or brass wire or pre-made rivets, I attach the bowl to the handle.  Finally I polish everything I can reach, then I heat it slightly and apply wax polish.  The handles are stainless and under normal use should not corrode if dried after washing.  Should they start to stain though, polish them with fine steel wool and coat with any good wax based furniture or automobile polish.  The bowls, usually made from copper or brass, will develop a natural patina over time.  If you want it shiny though you can always polish it with any good brass or copper polish. Thanks for looking, I'm Bob from BobArt Blacksmithing.  See my other coffee scoop listings, shipping is for however many I can put in a small flat rate box!
