This is a wooden portafilter handle only.
It has an M10 screw thread suitable for connecting to many standard metal portafilters, including the ones that we sell here.
These handles are NOT suitable for the Gaggia OEM standard or bottomless portafilters.
As a natural wood product, the tone / grain and lightness or darkness of finish can vary.
Olive wood care and maintenance: Most of our wooden products have a varnished finished, though the olive wood products are special and have an oiled finish - which typically requires periodic maintenance in order to enhance the appearance and feel of the grain, prevent any issues with cracking and increases the longevity of the wood. As required, the olive wood should be lightly reoiled with food grade mineral oil (not olive oil or vegetable oil as this won't usually dry) - we find that very lightly sanding the handle with a very fine sandpaper before applying oil can also help the oil to be absorbed and makes the surface super-smooth after application. Ensure the wood is dry and dust free by rubbing with a dry cloth, and then simply pour a little food grade mineral oil onto a cloth and rub this into the surface of the wood, leave it to dry for 10-15 minutes, the reapply - and after a further 15 minutes use a dry paper towel or cloth to remove any excess oil. That's it!
