Hmmmmm...I wonder if he's a sailor visiting the Philippines. Large wooden forks and spoons were very popular back in the 60s and before and they were, as I recall, made in the Philippines. Almost all of the military families in my neighborhood had a set hanging on the wall when I lived in Hawaii. I still have them. I remember one neighbor using the spoon to take a turkey out of the oven.
That's really interesting. I had no idea that they were a popular tourist item. Can you imagine spearing a turkey with that thing!?!
