The Pacific Yew is one of the hardest hardwood trees of the Pacific Northwest. A slow-growing evergreen tree with a striking grain color, Yew wood radiates warmth. It polishes to a very smooth textured that feels so nice in your hand!
Local First Nations identified Pacific yew as a plant with medicinal properties, making teas from the needles and bark, and applying crushed needles to wounds. They also used the extremely hard wood for implements that needed to withstand strain, such as fishhooks and paddles.
Our utensil products are ideal for both serving and cooking as the wood is so hard and will last for a long long time.
