Walnut End-Grain Cutting Board

325.00

At Bloodroot, we have long discussed how, if we could add anything to our customer’s kitchens, it would be an end-grain cutting board. End-grain wood boards are the absolute best for maintaining knives and significantly increase their edge life. On an end-grain board, the knife edge cuts parallel to the wood fibers rather than perpendicular, which reduces the abrasion on the knife edge and keeps it sharper for longer. So, having an end-grain cutting board helps our knives perform the way they are supposed to.

These boards are lovely - black walnut with deep handle notches on the sides for ease of movement and small rubber feet on the bottom to keep them from sliding on slick countertops or from having to put a damp cloth under them. Because they are made with a mixture of heartwood and sapwood, colors will vary. Some will be almost all dark brown, some will be a mixture of dark and lighter wood. We can’t take requests (so sorry!).

To maintain your board, it should be rubbed down with board butter (we like a mixture of beeswax and coconut oil) monthly or as needed. Board butter can be purchased online or made at home. With maintenance, the boards should last a lifetime and they are covered by our lifetime guarantee.

Details:

  • American Black Walnut heartwood and sapwood. Because of the mixture of heartwood and sapwood, colors will vary.

  • 18" W x 12" D x 2" H

  • Deep Finger grips on each side of the board

  • Low-profile rubber feet, secured with stainless steel screws to maintain stability on your countertop

  • Custom finish that contains no mineral oil.
