    Hi,
    I searched but couldn't find any help.
    I'm looking for a very small spoon to transfer fine grind herb from a small bottle to a pen type vaporizer.
    It will be very small amounts that go into a narrow chamber opening.

    I'm using a small plastic coffee stir stick. It has a small shaft and a tiny spoon at the end. The spoon is pointed, has a dished out recess to hold the herb, BUT it seems to get static charge and hold the smaller particles to the spoon.

    Any ideas appreciated. Thanks

    How about going to the grocery store and buying one of those metal cake icing funnels? A few of us use dram jars to keep small amounts of bud ready to carry around and the holes are small so using funnels makes it really easy. You could just tap some out and let it fall through the funnel! Should only be a dollar or two for one?

    DDave, thanks.
    In the Ebay pic, is that spoon next to a dime? It is what, 5% of the diameter of a dime?
    My plastic spoon is 2/3 the diameter of a dime but better would be at 20%
    That EBay spoon looks too small, I'll try to check better tomorrow / match my vape chamber
    up to a dime for comparison.. Thanks

    Yes, right about at 1 inch; it was designed to be kept inside a 4piece grinder in the collection compartment.

    I like the simple design. It ships flat, and you fold it as you wish- it can be folded one direction for right handed operation (pictured on the website), or it can be bent the reverse direction for easier left handed use.

    I like these cos its easy to create a level spoon measurement using the edge of another spoon in the set...which makes for accurate/consistant dosing. As they are meant for cooking they are also food safe.

    You can pick up the 5 piece set for around $8.

    A level Smidgen of ground weed is around 0.03g.

    When i was scrolling through I thought the largest spoon said dab instead of tad, all I could think was that would be one hell of a dab.

    These are an American product, so it took me a while to find them in Euroland...I tracked them down at an industrial kitchen suppliers in the end, kind of place that sells high end pots n pans etc

    I have little knowledge of US retailers, but this search link might be a good starting point for US members:

    https://www.google.com/#q=tad dash pinch smidgen drop&tbm=shop

    Bump the thread if still struggling to source :)

    Haha! ...I've yet to exceed a Pinch of herb, a Tad dab would be akin to the 13th Labour of Hercules!

    Thanks, lots of good ideas.
    Do those smudgeon spoons also list the real amounts, so you could use them for baking too?
    Like 1/8 tsp, 1/16 etc??

    And the Lotus scoop , stored in the grinder is cool too

    Make your own out of aluminum flashing. I calibrate the size for the task and boy it is fast loading. Vials are no problem to fill this way either. You need to make a scoop.
