Virginia Wild Cherry Food Spreader by Mokuchi

Each year Mokuchi, a studio specializing in traditional Japanese woodworking, takes a break from the furniture and architectural work to make a limited edition of food spreaders based on a simple, graceful form. Each spreader is shaped by hand using local hardwoods (sometimes called backyard exotics), often fallen from fruit trees rarely found commercially. Razor-sharp Japanese planes are used to uniformly slice the wood to create a lasting, glass-smooth finish. No oil, varnish or even sandpaper is used as they would alter and abrade the natural surface. This traditional approach created a timeless gift of craftsmanship and minimalist elegance. 

A fantastic gift for anyone that appreciates fine woodworking and minimalist design. Each piece will grow more beautiful with use. The natural oils from food and hand contact will bring out the patina of each spreader's unique wood grain. Spreaders are 8 1/4 to 8 1/2 inch in length.

Mokuchi has packaged each spreader with care and attention to detail. Inside a minimalist brown gift box, the spreader is nested in a stunning bed of curled, ribbon-thin wood shavings. These are made from the same wood used to make the spreader and the result of Mokuchi's master craftsman pulling the razor-sharp Japanese plane blade down the wood to yield the glass-smooth surface. A traditional letterpress card on Japanese Kozo paper describes how the gift was made and identifies the number of the spreader in the limited edition of each domestic hardwood. Each spreader also comes with a coordinated deep forest green satin ribbon that completes the packaging for a beautiful gift presentation.

Virginia Wild Cherry 2014 limited edition is 50 spreaders.
