Great, heavy duty spoon for cocktails requiring stirring. It's heavy enough to get small or large amounts of ice moving fast. It helps a lot when the bar is slammed, cuts down on on time per drink. Got a couple of these spoons for my home bar and also use them for making ice tea, etc. in tall glasses. The spoon also has a very nice bowl, allowing for accurate small (2.5 mil) amounts of liquid ingredients (olive juice, etc. for dirty drinks) and for spooning out olives, cherries and other garnishes. Great sturdy design. Easy to clean. I liked the straights so much that I also got a set of the spiral Bar Above spoons.
