Bloodwood is the densest wood we offer. Holding a Bloodwood utensil in your hand feels almost like holding steel. Color can vary from rich pinkish red to reddish brown and Bloodwood has a good resistance to color change with age. It has a fine texture, small pores, and sometimes irregular grain patterns. Commonly used to add a splash of color to fine furniture and cabinetry, a little Bloodwood is the perfect way to spice up your kitchen. See our wood care section for tips on keeping your Bloodwood utensils looking just the way you like them.
