Mninga Butter Knife
Hand carved from beautiful and sustainably sourced Mninga wood, these wooden knives would make a beautiful accompaniment to your table.
They’re handmade in Mtwara, Southern Tanzania, by the Makonde Wood Carvers: a group of artisans renowned for their craftsmanship who are training local, talented people with woodworking skills. The creation of each of these knives supports job creation and keeps the tradition of wood carving in Mtwara alive.
The Makonde tribe is renowned for their craftsmanship, the carving is all done freehand and then each knife is sanded to enhance the natural grain of the wood.
Measures approx. 18cm long. To take care of your knife, hand-wash in lukewarm water and pat dry, don’t leave it to soak. Use a food-safe wax or oil to bring the lustre back after time. The grain and colour of each knife is as unique as the piece of wood from which it's made and may not exactly match that in the picture.
Gift wrapped in tissue paper.
