If you are investing in the kitchen equipment – such as finer knives, then it’s wise to be looking after them by investing in a good chopping board. The cutting board is perhaps the most essential (after knives) tool in your kitchen for meal prep. Picking a chopping board is actually easy once you learn the properties of the materials. Investing in wooden end grain boards is always a good choice.
Our cutting boards are made of Japanese Aomori Hiba and Hinoki (Japanese Cypress wood) trees that have excellent characteristics, they are light, anti-bacterial, anti-allergic, ultra-lightweight, and anti-stain, making it a great material for cutting boards. They are durable and have a distinct fragrance similar to pine. Popular with sushi chefs and Shun knife owners, Hinoki and Aomori Hiba cutting boards will not dull knives due to the medium-soft firmness of the wood, yet are highly resistant to water and bacteria.
