Famous for it's durability and beauty, olive wood has quickly become one of my favorite choices for kitchen utensils. Rich with bold contrasting colors, smooth grains and edges. This is the kind of wood that maintains it's quality and becomes more resilient over time and use.
Since the wood is nonporous, it won't retain any stains, odors or germs. And since the grains inside of the wood are so tight, you won't have the frayed edges that can happen when using cheaper wood products.
It's recommended to season your new olive wood products a warm mineral oil. This will keep the product moisturized and protected for the many years ahead. Always remember to hand wash!
