The handsomely grained surface of this aged Spanish olive wood is pure natural beauty - a perfect background for your wedges of cheese. Carved from one block of olive wood, its smooth hard natural surface is just the right surface for a cheese knife, and extra wedges of cheese.
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.
