Spoon is a state caused by illegal interchange entry angle, overuse of one hand in crossing the river, or by another player using a non-reversed straddle on an adjacent triple-interchangeable line.

The colours of all stations when in knip are replaced by their diagonal's opposite, and peg distances are reversed as if the player was performing a reverse manoeuvre. In spoon, players cannot cross the river at all without use of at least two substantive rebounds, which must be declared beforehand.

Spoon can be exited by a triple return or a triple rebound without crossing the Circle Line. (IMCS Ref: Concepts and Definitions Vol 3 Pg 391 - 394; Rules 899, 1984 and 2331.)

Spoon is very sensitive to the game context; under certain circumstances it is a corruption of 'Spain'.
