Small Ziricote knife
Artisan made in Guatemala
These gorgeous small wooden Ziricote knives are made by local skilled carpenters from the Peten Jungle in Guatemala. The exotic wood is sustainably harvested and FSC certified. Our partners in Guatemala work to create jobs and foster positive social impact in a place where poverty is common.
This beautiful grain is called Ziricote, a dark landscaped grain which is sometimes referred to as “spider-webbing”.
Size: 16cm long
Hardwoods will last a lifetime with a little care. We recommend conditioning boards/ spoons/ knifes with a mixture of beeswax and food safe mineral oil, linseed oil or any other natural oil that does not turn rancid. Do this once a week for the first month and then periodically to restore vibrancy when the wood dulls. Items can be washed with warm soapy water but never leave them sitting in water.
Do not put items in the dishwasher.
