ooooh that only goes on in the Ukraine...

The Ukraine is still a country in the world with the highest number of living cannibals.

Are you sure that Kiev is chicken? Tastes like chicken....

While there are now over 158 schools of martial arts worldwide which teach spoon-fighting in the thirteen recognised styles including the banned Finnish 'Kaurasmaki' huge iron ladel technique, there is only one original form; the central European 'Leuffelei'. A pamphlet explaining this deadly technique and a little of its history will be available ready for next years season at an unbelievably reasonable price.

I find that being in Yorkshire the police are far more relaxed, not so keen on using their stop and search powers as the Met in London and so I feel far more comfortable carring a full 7 inch steel spoon in my jacket pocket.

Have you seen the rubber training spoons? Used for training NKVD operatives in the use of the easily concealable NKVD spoon. This could be hidden under collars or in hats etc.

I believe Mothercare bought most of them when they appeared as surplus after the Soviet system collapsed.

The full tang metal version of this weapon was supposed to be used to kill Trotsky in Mexico, however due to a malfunction with the spoon (the handle snapped) the agent had to use an ice pick instead.

This engraved spoon has hung on my wall for a number of years. It's a massive 28 inches long. I noticed this type being used in some of the photos posted a while ago, is it worth more because of the inscription? Can anyone shed any more light on it?

Kostya, sounds about right :wink:

Richard, that looks to me like one of the Anti-Tank spoons displayed in earlier photographs, but deactivated and decorated so that it can be given to civvies. Comrade Shabby will be able to tell you more.
