About our walnut boards
Walnut is another hardwood that’s an excellent choice in the kitchen. Its dark colour is one of its main appeals, and although it’s softer than maple it will still hold up well over time. Walnut falls in the “just right” category of hardness that’s perfect for both board and knife maintenance, just like Japanese Aomori Hiba.
Walnut wood, as opposed to walnut dust, is safe (allergies and sensitivities notwithstanding) as long as you don’t eat it. Walnut is used all the time in cutting boards and other kitchen items.
Cutting boards made of walnut have a long established good reputation and are widely present in professional kitchens. They are used by professional chefs worldwide as superior quality boards. This wood is also better for your knife’s edge, which means the sharpness of your kitchen knives lasts longer and is hygienic.
Our cutting boards are made of solid natural wood and we never use glue to stick them. The boards have been treated with food safe oil for protection and colour highlighting purposes. Because every single piece is made by craftsmen with delicate care, we cannot produce on a large scale, however, we always check the quality by ourselves under the strict inspection criteria for you, our important customers. You can feel the craftsman’s soul when you see our boards’ finishing surface.
