Treat your wood utensils with care and they will last generations.
Hand wash only. Soap and water are good but the dishwasher and or soaking wooden utensils in water too long or too often will cause wood to draw in water and will eventually cause cracks.
When utensil feels rough, sand with fine grit sandpaper (between 320-600), or a paper bag (which works but will take longer), or a Scotch Brite pad, to give it that smooth like new feel.
Every once in a whiile, when the utensil is dry, coat it wih a conditioner. The best choice is mineral oil/bee's wax, Let the conditioner stay on the utensil until you use it again.
An excellent DIY conditioner is a mixture of mineral oil and bee's wax. About four parts of mineral oil to one part of bee's wax. Carefully melt the wax before adding the mineral oil. Unlike many of the other oils, mineral oil will not become rancid.

Ammonites first appeared about 240 million years ago, though they descended from straight-shelled cephalopods called bacrites that date back to the Devonian, about 415 million years ago. Ammonites were prolific breeders, lived in schools, and are among the most abundant fossils found today. They went extinct with the dinosaurs 65 million years ago. Scientists use the various shapes and sizes of ammonite shells that appeared and disappeared through the ages to date other fossils.
