These are the kind of kitchen tools that will last many years and be as lovely and functional as the day they were purchased.

Wood will become "worn" looking after continued usage but it's easy to renew the surface with a fine abrasive like 0000 steel wool or plastic grey abrasive pads. After a 2 minute sanding apply butcher block oil or our favorite, walnut oil. Please don't leave wooden objects in water in the sink our use them in a microwave.
There's a high-tech procedure to infuse wood with a thin epoxy in a vacuum chamber. When treated in this way the porous material is fully penetrated with the liquid epoxy and acts more like plastic, however the look and feel is unchanged. During the process colors can be added and I sometimes do this for handles in our knife work.
