This cheese cutter is made from Zebrawood. Zebrawood is an exotic hardwood native to the Western African countries of Cameroon and Gabon. The Zebra-like appearance is due to the light colored sapwood in contrast with the dark colored wavy and interlocked grain pattern. It is a highly decorative exotic wood, used in veneer, custom furniture & trim, marquetry, exotic guitars and many other specialty items. The cutter measures 6” by 10” by 7/8” and rubber feet are included. Multiple coats of hand rubbed oil based finish have been applied and over-coats of wipe-on varnish have been added for durability. The finish is completely food safe. If cleaning is required, hand wash with mild detergent, rinse and dry. This cheese cutter is shown with a black arm and handle. A chrome arm and handle is available as an option. You can see examples of this option on some of my other listings. If you prefer the chrome arm and handle, just leave me a note on the order.
