Spoon of the month
Vintage Finnair spoon
“Borrowed” from aircraft ca. 1999
Pre-9/11 dining in an aircraft used to be a pretty sweet deal. Not only did the food taste better (?), but you’d be eating it with cutlery made out of high-grade, solid steel.
Of course there were risks involved in providing passengers with these potentially lethal weapons – sometimes a traveller would take down an entire airplane crew armed with only a dessert spoon – but that’s the kind of risks airlines were willing to take back in the day.
Not anymore of course. That’s why we should be thankful that Kasper Stromman himself has thoughtfully preserved a vintage specimen of the metal spoon for future generations. Reader’s of this blog will also most certainly know how to appreciate the engraved classic Finnair logo.
Airline cutlery made out of metal – gone but not forgotten.
