It was during the latter half of the 13th century that the ‘sucket’, a type of bar spoon with a fork at one end, first made an appearance in Germany. It was common back then to always carry a set of tableware with you, in the same way modern time bartenders will always carry their bar tools with them. The ancestor to the flat end bar spoon is the apothecary spoon, which in the 18th century came in handy in order to dissolve crystallized or coarsely powdered medicines, similar to how we will nowadays crush a sugar cube with the muddler end of the spoon. The typical bar spoon measure should be 5ml, the same as that of a teaspoon.
