The acorn knop was the most common of all spoon types. The acorn is a traditional symbol of immortality and was also regarded as a talisman and as a remedy against cholera and fluxes. It was undoubtedly these properties that made it so popular as a spoon type. The original had a brass knop, although this one has a pewter knop.
