Olive wood utensils don't have a finish on them and are very smooth to the touch because it's a superior wood compared to the pale rough wood found in the dollar stores, or grocery stores. I wouldn't buy anything with a finish on it.
This really is a case of you get what you pay for, unless you're lucky enough to find an actual bargain. Good luck, and welcome to DC.
