01 Gold is built with a single tablespoon volume to scale recipes and ratios with consistency. The well is deeply formed to cradle liquid, the tip is tapered to a fine point for precise pouring or basting. The handle is long enough to stir a braise or a pot of beans, and nimble enough to sauce a plate.The lip is thin and flared to help scrape the corners of a pan or storage container.
The main feature of the 01 is its single tablespoon volume. The idea is to have a measuring spoon that doubles as your mixing and serving utensil — saving time, clean up, and guess work. Say you’re making a vinaigrette, use the 01 spoon to measure out your ratios, mix and pour. The bowl of the 01 is designed with a pointed spout, making pouring and plating accurate and consistent.
Inspired by the worn and tarnished steel often found at flea markets, and modeled after old American and European silhouettes the spoon is tumbled and unpolished. This creates a matte and imperfect material finish. Each piece is stamped and etched, then finished by hand on a lathe in Mr. Okada’s workshop.
