This is a lovely nutcracker made from locally sourced olive wood. It is made by artisans in the Bethlehem area.
Nuts are grown and consumed in abundance throughout the Holy Land and therefore are featured prominently in Biblical Scripture. The olive tree is known for it’s extremely durable hard wood. Thus it makes this a practical tool ideal for your Christmas nutcracking!

Olive wood is known for its durability. Also the wood is coupled with the beautiful, characteristic natural inclusions that feature so prominently through the grain. Therefore, it’s not hard to see why it’s such a popular material for kitchenware and thus a perfect gift.

Most woods are unsuitable for the use as kitchen utensils due to the problems posed by food becoming trapped in the grain. However, that’s not the case with Olive wood!  Boasting a finer grain in comparison to other woods, olive wood bears a higher concentration of natural oils. This (once dried) create a resin-like seal when the wood is cut.
