In SLASH'EM and SLASHTHEM, the spoon serves as the base item for Houchou. It is not randomly generated,[1] but it can be wished for. Doing so is inadvisable however, as non-artifact spoons have no use.

Applying a spoon will result in the message: "It's a finely crafted antique spoon; what do you want to do with it?" Despite the wording, this is not a prompt, so the player can't actually do anything special with it.

In dNetHack, the spoon is made of iron and classified as a weapon-tool that uses the knife skill. It is the starting "weapon" of the Convict, and acts as the base item for the Convict's new quest artifact, the Iron Spoon of Liberation. Spoons are not randomly generated.

They do 1d1 damage to both small and large targets, weigh 1 unit and have a base price of 1 zm.
