Magnetic wall mounted knife rack -European olivewood-
These magnetic strips are made in our own workshop.
This particular strip is made from European olive wood. Olive wood is one of the hardest woods in the world and is easy to maintain. Because olive wood is slightly greasy, olive wood products remain beautiful for a long time and this layer prevents liquids from food and drinks from soaking into the wood.
The olive tree is a small, sometimes stocky and irregularly shaped tree that occurs around the Mediterranean Sea. These trees can become very old, sometimes over 300 years old! Olive wood is freshly sawn pale yellow with brown streaks. This darkens from light yellow to brown with dark brown stripes. The wood can show beautiful drawings.
Olive wood often has cracks because of the capricious shape of the trunks, but despite the hardness it is easy to work and to polish beautifully. The olive from this tree is harvested for consumption and for the manufacture of olive oil. The wood is only available in small irregular pieces or logs. It is suitable for luxury items such as handles, knobs, kitchen tools and wood carving and turning.
The magnetic strip can be ordered in various lengths and offers space for approximately 6-12 knives (depending on the type of knife and the length of the shelf). The magnetic strip can be easily attached with two screws supplied. Optionally, the strip can also be attached by means of mounting glue.

The photo shows a magnetic strip with and without Tung oil treatment. The oil makes the plank a lot darker. If you want a Tung oil treatment, that is possible, the delivery time will be extended by about a week.
Note: This is a natural product, which means that the colors and grain of the magnetic strip may differ.
Please note that the delivery time will be about 10 days, hopefully shorter!
