MATERIAL CURED BEFORE SHIPPING
The journey begins with the careful selection of materials, then on to our wood shop. All cutting boards are sealed with a combination of mineral oil and bees wax and allowed to cure for 24 hours. After that, they're off to the engraver where they're permanently stamped with your preferred mark. Finally, shipped with care to its destination.
Bamboo is a renewable resource. It's the fastest growing woody plant in the world. In fact, certain types of bamboo can grow up to 8 feet per day! This amazing growth is because bamboo is a grass - not a tree. When harvested, up to 1/3 of the bamboo will fully grow back within one year. This makes bamboo an excellent alternative to hardwoods.
Bamboo planting can slow deforestation, providing an alternative source of timber for the construction industry. It allows communities to turn away from the destruction of their native forests and to construct commercial bamboo plantations that can be selectively harvested annually without the destruction of the grove. Tree plantations have to be chopped down and terminated at harvest but bamboo keeps on growing. Growing forests absorb CO2 but deforestation results in fewer trees to soak up rising levels of CO2. Bamboo minimizes CO2 and generates up to 35% more oxygen than equivalent stands of trees.
HARDWOOD (Maple & Walnut)
We prefer a hard wood cutting board — like maple or walnut wood — because it won’t scar as easily as plastic and you won’t have to replace it as often if you are diligent about upkeep. (Be sure to always wash and dry your board well, and also lightly rub it with mineral oil to prevent moisture and bacteria from seeping in.) Furthermore, not only will your wood board last, but it will also help your knives last, because hard wood boards won’t dull your blades as quickly as plastic or glass boards will. Ultimately, whether you use wood or bamboo, the best method for ensuring safety is to use separate cutting boards for raw meat and poultry, and for your vegetables, fruit and prepared food. This limits cross-contamination, which is the biggest danger of all. What kind of cutting board do you prefer?
