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 great choice. One of the best woods suitable for delicate blades such as Japanese knives are hinoki (cypress) and walnut. Boards in both woods are available to purchase in our store.
