Walnut End-Grain Cutting Board


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. End-grain boards also have other benefits, that we will outline on the page where the board is available for purchase. 

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. 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, made at home, or we sell it here. With maintenance, the boards should last a lifetime and are covered by our lifetime guarantee.


  • American Black Walnut heartwood and sapwood

  • 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. (Mineral oil is petroleum-based, and even though there is food-grade mineral oil, we don’t love using it on our cutting boards).
