luxury wood, naturally resistant to water, bacteria, and staining. Contrary to traditional edge-grain cutting boards, end-grain fabrication consists of fibrous wood grain in alternating directions which helps to prevent gouging in the board by allowing the wood fibers to spring back easily. This unique checkered construction offers a slip-resistant surface that absorbs impact, ensuring your Dalstrong knives stay sharper, longer. Easily maintained, the tight-wood grain ensures a long-lasting hygienic cutting surface making this board ideal in wet environments such as busy professional kitchens. Traditionally thicker than other boards, end-grain affords the added ability to be resistant to warping. Sizeable and hefty, the Dalstrong Colossal Teak Cutting Board doubles as a chopping or butcher’s block. Also ideal for those with limited counter space, this massive board can expand your cutting surface when placed over a sink, stove, or tabletop. Two steel handles on either side are suited to carry and serve, ideal for beautifully presenting your finest roasts, charcuterie, bread, cheeses, and more. An added bonus, the underside of the board features a curved cut-out to house a side plate for easy scraping and transferring of ingredients from the cutting board to the pot, pan, serving plate, or for waste.
