I bought this piece as a part of a matching set from this company, to match a flatware set I already own. This is a neat-looking piece than will hardly leave the drawer. This little spreader is essentially doing the same job as a butter knife minus the sharpness. Applying a soft cheese or jelly on a platter for guests is mostly what I'd use this for. I'm sure I'll get compliments on the design, but for the price, I wish there was a bit more to it.
My sister has other pieces by the same artist and requested this spreader. She is the "hors d'oeuvres queen" and will put it to good use. It is a beautiful handcrafted piece.
I use it for cheeses. I love unique items and this is perfect!!!!
