Wild Olive Wood

This is a well-known hard, heavy, strong and finely grained wood. The sapwood is pale brown and the heartwood brown with yellow-brown blotches and dark brown annual rings. The wood is fragrant, easy to work with and produces a particularly smooth finish.

This wood is exceptionally suitable for knife handles, ornaments, furniture and very popular as inlays for furniture. The Wild Olive tree is a very slow grower and the wood is very dense – stabilization is therefore not necessary when using this wood on a knife handle.
