PROTECT THE EDGE OF YOUR SHUNS WITH A HINOKI CUTTING BOARD

Hinoki is a type of Japanese cypress renowned for its beauty as well as its delicate, natural fragrance. Used in a cutting board, this medium-soft wood “gives” as you cut, helping to preserve the edges of your fine Shun cutlery. Quite simply put, hinoki is the perfect cutting surface for all your Shun knives. This larger size offers the right surface for all general-purpose cooking tasks. 

The wood for Shun’s hinoki products is grown in Japan and is Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) Certified for sustainable forest management practices. In addition, all our hinoki products are made from wood resulting from forest thinning, which is required to maintain healthy growth.

Here are some tips for maintaining your Shun Hinoki Cutting Board: • Wet cutting board before each use; this helps it resist staining • Wash with mild detergent; towel dry, then let air-dry away from direct sunlight and • Do not put in dishwasher

Manage Your Expectations
I have owned and used this cutting board for several years and like it enough for 5 stars. You may not. Botanically, Hinoki is a cypress as stated in the description. It's closest American relatives are the following cedars from the same family and genus: Port Orford cedar (Chamaecyparis Lawsoniana) Alaskan cedar (Chamaecyparis Nootkatensis) Atlantic White cedar (Chamaecyparis Thyoides ) These do not have a cool Japanese name but the Port Orford is good enough for wood arrows and would likely be similar in function to Hinoki and would likely also make a nice cutting boards with similar qualities. Reportedly Hinoki and Port Orford have anti microbial qualities. It is light weight, not very hard, and relatively strong for its weight. It can get dings and dents like cedar. Surface cuts tend to heal. If you like the hard heavy feel of maple or other hardwood, you may not like it. This is what most people expect from a cutting board; and if so, they will be disappointed. I think the other qualities of the Hinoki or Port Orford are a better fit for a cutting board than the traditional. The exception might be heavy, frequent use with a meat cleaver. Most non-commercial users will not do this. It probably will not change your life, but I have used it regularly and been satisfied.
