Olive wood is used a great deal in the production of knife handles. It has a light yellow and light brown colour with darker brown or black streaks along its entire length.
As the wood ages, the colour becomes darker, the wood becomes polished and the knife’s handle grows smoother. Olive wood can retain its beauty for many years if you take good care of it.
Did you know? The meaning behind olive trees...
With a lifespan of up to 600 years, olive trees represent strength, longevity, wisdom, luck and prosperity. Throughout history, olive branches were offered during religious ceremonies as symbols of purity and blessing. Olive trees are also renowned emblems of peace and harmony.
Pax, the Roman goddess of peace, was often depicted holding an olive branch, as was her Greek peer, Eirene.
Even today, the expression “to hold out an olive branch” refers to a reconciliatory gesture between two warring parties.
How to care for an olive wood handle?
If you take care of your olive wood handle, you will be able to take advantage of the elegance of this wood for many years. You can keep it in top condition by polishing it from time to time with mineral oil (which enhances the wood’s natural colours). Applying oil to the surface of the wood helps to resist damage resulting from regular and prolonged use of the knife.
Simply wipe with a damp cloth to clean. Never place a knife with a wooden handle in a dishwasher.
