A good tool is an extension of the hands and these salad tossing friends do the job of our own beloved mitts but without coating them in Caesar dressing. Win. Hand-carved from single pieces of olive wood in Kenya-through a terrific Fair Trade program assuring fair pay for artisans-these pieces present both the subtle marks of hand-craftsmanship and the marvelous smooth finish of true artistry. With natural antibacterial properties, olive wood is extremely hard, strong, and durable, with an exquisite deep graining pattern reminiscent of oil swirls, no two pieces are alike.
Take Care: These are built to last. Hand wash and avoid submerging in water. Occasionally condition the wood with your preferred food-safe wood conditioner (we swear by Old Mill's All Natural Beeswax and Mineral Oil Wood Polish, available right here at The Foundry), being sure to allow enough time for the wood to absorb the oil before its next use.
