Spatula of Liberty
Worry not, history buffs! Proof of French citizenship is not a requirement! Regardless of nationality, whether or not you give your spatula to the American people is up to you... We suggest you keep her though, and let Liberty enlighten your cooking!
I can never quite decide for the labels whether to have:
"There I was, an icon to world freedom, and now I'm a
"PLEASE can I put the torch down now so that I can
play with my i-pad".
"Ooh, how can you do this to me?"
It doesn't always happen, but find out from the Production page how they are made stripy and with rounded-grain faces (it took me several months of cutting cats out before it dawned on me how I could partly control the process).
The very first time I cut out cat spatulas, I drilled pilot holes in the first two for putting the scroll saw blade in to cut out teeth. . After spending rather a long time sawing out not-very-good teeth in the first mouth, I looked round and the other cat was saying to me a mixture of "Ooooh! How can you do this to me?" and "Owww! That's SO hot!". I never looked back - and they never have teeth.
"Please Miss! Can I come out now?"
Please Miss! Can I come out now?
You could leave him in the corner if you like, but why would you? He's designed to be used, and has every right to complain if left to languish in the utensil jar... In fact, various tortures are available for those who do not use their spatulas!
The label can also say "Please Sir! Can I come out now?"
Venus de Milo
The usual caption for the Venus de Milo tag is:
"First my arms, now I'm a spatula. Brilliant!"

For further information on her, please go to the Design Process page. This spatula is the only one that I have to draw round a template before sawing it out, but a) I don't keep to the lines, and b) the template doesn't have a head so I have to make that bit up.
