An end grain cutting board has a much harder surface and gives a truly resistant cutting surface, and ensuring your knife stays sharper for longer.
The size and weight of our end grain cutting boards make it the perfect working space for all your chopping and cutting while your cutting boards stays perfectly still. Old fashioned butcher blocks and cutting boards were always end grain design. Our end grain cutting boards do not show any knife marks on the boards.
A genuine “van der West” cutting board is manufactured from finely selected rare woods. We cut individual pieces of wood from timber sections and then assemble them ensuring that the grain runs vertically. In practice this means that the cutting surface is actually the end of many individual pieces of indigenous rare woods.
Using the end grain as the exposed surface minimizes marking of the board (and creating the subsequent space for germs), and protects you knife edges’ as well, as you are essentially cutting “between” the fibers of the wood which promotes the board to “self-heal”, as hardwood’s natural tendency is to close the gaps between the fiber.
