In the United States, the Spurtle is still thought of as the cross between a wooden spoon, a spatula, and a turner.
In the early 1990's, "spurtles" made an American comeback as one of the essential kitchen tools. Today, the term is not as likely to be used as the utensils description.
I did find a great source (for those that have asked) for hand-turned and crafted spurtles (or also known as "classic stirrers"). Check out the Forest Treasures for more information on their beautiful stirrers.
For those that have asked, I hope this helps a little bit. If a hand-crafted spurtle is not to your liking, I would suggest shopping at your favorite kitchen supply store for a similarly designed utensil!
