This is an “End-Grain” board, meaning the end grain of a board is facing upward. End-grain cutting boards require extra steps to create and are often preferred by chefs for their advantages. Advantages include the end-grain fibers are gentler on knives, and knife marks are less noticeable than a face grain or edge grain cutting board. More intricate patterns are also possible due to wood movement and wood grain orientation.
This board is suited well as a cutting board, as well as charcuterie, food display, and much more. It has a food safe finish that will ensure lasting protection; however, occasional maintenance with cutting board or butcher block conditioners (oils, wax, etc.) are recommended. Our own blend of food-safe oil and wax (board butter) will be included with purchase of the board. Directions for care and washing will also be included.
