Thuja is the wood of the tree of life. A life saver for seafarers.

The tree of life Thuja occidentalis was one of the first known remedies against scurvy. Hence the name.

French sailors benefited from the high vitamin C content of the evergreen branches on long voyages. The green of the thuja tree was used medicinally against respiratory infections and bacterial and viral diseases.

As a medicinal plant, the right amount of use and dosage is of course crucial. The branch tips and cones of the tree of life also contain the neurotoxic thujone, which is used as a drug.

The wood is absolutely food-safe in the kitchen.

Today, Thuja is a widespread tree and a popular hedge plant.

Thuja, Latin Thuja occidentalis is generally the occidental tree of life. The thuja originally came from eastern North America.

The tree of life can reach a trunk diameter of up to one meter depending on the climate and speed of growth. The wood of the tree of life is not so dense and therefore correspondingly light.

The red-brown to light yellow heartwood is very stable and therefore well suited as a handle material. It hardly shrinks during drying and is considered dimensionally stable.

Thuja, a fragrant wood of the tree of life 

Resistant to moisture, ideal as a kitchen knife handle material.

Even if you smell a kitchen knife after years of use, the Thuja handle still exudes its special aromatic scent.

The scent of the essential oils is cedar and floral. Since the wood is very water-resistant, it is used for boat and hydraulic structures, shingles, fence posts and masts.

Of course, this moisture resistance is a welcome feature when it comes to knife handles. Thuja tolerates a damp environment, does not swell and does not form a gap between steel and wood.

Cedar scent, the smell of essential oils

Thuja, the tree of life, enriches the kitchen with beautifully grained wooden handles on kitchen knives. In the long run, the wood gives off a fine smell of fir thanks to its essential oils.

The oils and slow growth make thuja a water-resistant, ideal starting material for the manufacture of kitchen knife handles.
