Almost all bar tool selection is based on preference. Try as many styles as you can and see what feels comfortable to you! The important features of bar spoons are the balance of the spoon, as well as the weight in your hands. Practice stirring with different styles of bar spoons to determine your favorite! Preferential style differences include the length of the stem, unique end-caps (decorative or functional), twisted or straight stem, and more! Some bar spoons don't even have the "spoon" portion at all and feature two teardrop shapes on both ends.
