The elegant, slender design of this sustainably sourced wild olive wood butter knife, makes spreading your butter or vegetable spread a joyful experience.
The hand carved shape makes them equally useful as palette knives for budding artists. What could be better than giving the artful gift of carved utensils to those creating their own masterpieces.
ARTISANS & VALUES
Our contemporary hand carved utensils are crafted in Nairobi by Zephania and his small team. He uses Wild Olive and Neem wood that is all sustainably sourced from his plantation in Kenya, alongside bone and soapstone from a local quarry.
Bone accents are a bi-product of the Kenyan farming industry and each design is hand batiked using vegetable dyes. This may cause slight variations from the image shown.

Olive wood has an excellent reputation for being harder and less porous than other woods. We recommend hand washing your wooden utensils with a mild detergent and warm water. Avoid boiling water and dishwashers as high temperatures may cause the wood to expand and split. Always towel dry after washing to prevent moisture cracks.
The same measures apply to wooden utensils with horn or bone accents.
Treat them once a month with a food safe mineral oil (we like to use olive oil). Simply rub in a small amount with a soft cloth to condition the wood and restore its warm, polished look.
