<<< I recall a mention of horn spoons being used for lab work and  
pharmacy prep
because once polished, they were pretty much inert to acids, bases  
and darn
easy to just wipe clean. Your surfaces might vary.. >>>

Just in case anyone would like to make some of these, perhaps they  
have some horn scraps lying around from making horn sausage stuffers  
or some such, there is this article in the Florilegium:

Horn-Spoons-art    (9K)  1/ 5/00    "Making Horn Spoons" by Mistress  

And a few cautions on cleaning them. You don't want to let these soak  
in warm water overnight, for instance...

horn-utn-care-msg  (7K)  3/26/05    Care of utensils made of horn.

...and psst, Pyro I don't think these horn spoons would smell very  
good if you burn them.  :-)
