The knife is made of aromatic juniper wood. Juniper oil is widely used in aromatherapy throughout the world. The juniper oil scent is suffused through the wood and everything made from it. So in addition to the beauty and functionality of the tools, there is also a very pleasant, but not overpowering scent of juniper that will make the entire kitchen smell wonderful! Every item is unique and handmade so it might be slightly different from the other.
