A man from Jaipur in the north-western Indian state of Rajasthan has “carved” a record for himself by making the world’s smallest wooden spoon.

The creation by Navratan Prajapati Murtikar, which is merely two millimetres (mm) in height and 0.7 inches in length, has helped him enter the Guinness World Records (GWR).

GWR also shared a video of the man making the spoon from their official Twitter account.

The caption of the video reads: “New record: Smallest wooden spoon – 2 mm (0.7 inches) made by Navratan Prajapati Murtikar (India).”

In the video, Prajapati is seen making the spoon with a lot of concentration and precision. He also kept it on a grain of rice to make all understand how tiny his creation is.

“Guinness World Records is the Kohinoor diamond in records and after receiving it I feel like wearing the most magnificent crown on my head,” the artiste said while talking to GWR.

The man also has plans to develop a miniature craft museum.

This is not the first time that Prajapati has made a record. In 2006, he got a Limca World Record certificate for making the world’s smallest functional lantern which could even be lit for a few seconds on three to four drops of kerosene.

The record for making the world’s smallest spoon was earlier held by Gowrishankar Gummadidhala, also from India.

The artist from the southern state of Telangana made a wooden spoon in 2021 that was 4.5 mm long, according to GWR.
