Handmade olive-wood utensils are a practical addition on the kitchen counter and handsome on the table. Marcelli Formaggi, a cheese company, imports quite an assortment from Abruzzo, Italy.

That the utensils cannot go in the dishwasher may be a drawback, but then, I never put anything wood in the dishwasher: Olive wood utensils, $8 to $125; tool holder, $45 (tools sold separately), marcelliformaggi.com.
