These Ultra demitasse spoons are classic, hence the title “Ultra.” They are what the arch-typical demitasse spoon should be: perfect proportions, and no dizzying frills. Where the spoon bowl connects to the handle, the stem is a mere 5 mm wide. The handle of the spoon grows to triple this width (15 mm) over the stem’s length of 60 mm. This gives the demitasse spoon a very graceful flair: the width increases 3X as the length increases 12X, a classic 4:1 ratio that gives the flair elegance that’s nearly distracting as it sits on the table before you. This is a serious, beautiful, and “basic” demitasse spoon with classic proportions. Hence its name: “Ultra.”
