Product Details

This cutting board is crafted from hinoki wood, which has been used in Japan as construction material for centuries, revered for its lightweight and anti-bacterial properties. It’s these properties that make it excellent for food prep as well, and it has the bonus feature of being gentle on your knives, particularly Japanese knives. Since the wood resists deep knife scars, your knives will stay sharper for longer. To avoid stains, Kai recommends slightly dampening the board with water before use.

About The Brand


Since its founding in 1908, Kai knives have held a cult status in Japan—and since their European debut in 1980, the rest of the world has caught on. Taking their inspiration from samurai blacksmithing but incorporating modern manufacturing processes, Kai has mastered the art of making extremely sharp, durable knives that feel effortless to use. All their knives are manufactured in Seki, the knife capital of Japan. As their products reached global popularity, Kai has expanded their range to include European shapes like the chef’s knife as well as ambidextrous handles, such as in the Kai Shun Premier and Kai Shun Nagare ranges.
