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. This board also features a handy juice groove around the edge of the board so juice gets caught in the groove for less mess and easy clean up.
