I'm so glad we now have someone who was there on the set of ANH to finally explain exactly how this “spoon” was bent, installed, and held into the Kobold. My friend what else can you tell us? If the handle was bent like a spring, why might it have fallen off? Or did the crew take it off to eat lunch? To be totally accurate we must ascertain the make, model, finish, and name of this spoon....:facepalmHA! Now that @teecrooz pointed out the belt clip, I can't unsee it. I guess I was really trying to prove Spoon Theory with a bit too much enthusiasm and not enough enlargement! Which is ironic because I had really zoomed into the image in Photoshop to get the path for my coloring just right.
Don't worry @Lichtbringer ! The handle is just bent back under the spoon and is forced down inside the Kobold with a spring-bend (like a money-clip that pushes out instead of holding in) in it to hold it in place.
