As part of our Pro Tool series, we’re looking for that must-have device in your line of work, be it a pair of scissorsnotebook, or deck of cards

The next item in our series? A spoon. 

Professional: Jeffrey Keith, abstract painter. 

Pro Tool: Metal soup spoon.

Why it’s a Pro Tool: “I was told early on that one of the tools a painter always needed was a spoon… The handle end is really just perfect for opening paint cans. The spoon part is great for rubbing things down, like if you’re making a block print or wood print.”
