- Authentic Spanish aged olive wood
- Carved by skilled artisan Angel in Navarra
- Beautiful craftsmanship paired with practical use
- Size - 12 inches long with 2.5 inch handle
This handsome cutting board is carved from one block of aged Spanish olive wood. Its active grained wood surface is attractive - and the smooth hard natural surface is a perfect surface to protect a sharp knife. The only care it needs is to be wiped with sunflower oil, or another neutral oil now and then.
The handle, carved from the same piece of wood, makes the cutting board easy to use. It is as practical as it is elegant. It is 12 inches long, with a 2 1/2 inch handle.
Since classical times olive wood has been one of the most prized mediums for carving; because when fashioned by an artisan this hardwood provides a smooth, silky finish. These are prize winning olive wood products that we have at La Tienda. They are personal creations of Angel, from the Province of Navarra.
Angel draws upon 27 years of experience as he selects just the right block of aged olive wood. The block he selects is absolutely flawless - with no chance of cracking. He never cuts corners by using laminates, which are prone to splitting.
He fashions the aged olive wood by cutting, turning, and sanding the ancient wood. He sets aside the final product for at least two months so that he can be sure that the wood in the hand fashioned product is completely dry. Finally Angel applies a natural sunflower coating. Angel guarantees any of his hand carved creations for five years.

"I love my Olive Wood cutting board. Just after Christmas I was watching a program (HGTV) and the topic was kitchen cutlery. He made the statement that if you have sharp knives and want to keep them that way you should be using a wooden carving surface. Well, I had just invested in a 'good' set of knives, so I went online and found LaTienda and read all of the specifications for their carving boards made from a solid piece of olive wood. I purchased it and am simply in love with using it. I prepare my meals using fresh fruits, herbs and vegetables and it is just perfect!!"
