I have probably had this spatula 15 years. I have bought many replacements but I could never part with it no matter how decrepit it looked. Many of the replacement spatulas have fallen apart and been tossed but this one was always reliable.
It finally pooped out — you can see daylight where it broke.
You get attached to your tools. I broke a slotted spoon the other day. After 35+ years it just wore out. Had a moment of silence as it went into the trash bin. Farewell, good and loyal servant.
