Yew

Latin name: Taxus baccata.

Origin: France

Color: yellow, orange-brown to pale pink.

Yew (Taxus baccata) is a wood prized in cutlery for its remarkable properties. This evergreen tree is found in various regions of Europe and Asia. Yew wood is known for its hardness, density and strength, making it the material of choice for high-end knife handles.

In cutlery, yew is appreciated for its unique aesthetic appeal. Its fine, tight grain, combined with hues ranging from pale yellow to orange-brown, gives knife handles an elegant, attractive appearance. What's more, the hard, resistant nature of yew wood makes it durable and suitable for everyday use.

Knife-makers also appreciate the ease with which yew wood can be worked, enabling them to create customized knife handles with complex shapes and finishes.

It is important to note that yew is a toxic wood, and precautions must be taken when working with this material. Craftsmen should use appropriate personal protective equipment when handling yew wood to avoid direct contact with skin and mucous membranes. However, once properly worked and finished, yew wood offers exceptional results and is highly appreciated in the world of high-end cutlery.
