Top-quality cutting board made from a single piece of hinoki wood, a rare type of cypress found only in Japan. Prized by high-end Japanese restaurants, hinoki boards are light, exceptionally durable and water resistant, and gentle on knives.
Cutting board features beeswax coating on edges to retain natural hinoki oil, along with a juice well on the backside. Limited lifetime warranty. Made in Japan.

With a long list of firstsincluding the first stainless steel blade, first multi-purpose kitchen shears and first santoku on the American marketZwilling J.A. Henckels has been a true innovator in the world of cutlery.
I was a little apprehensive about buying a cutting board sight unseen and spending so much for a relatively small one , but other comments were favorable. Delighted to see the high quality of this board-- very smooth finish and love the fact that it is made from one solid piece of wood not laminated. The 15"" x 9"" size is perfect for most cutting jobs and leaves room on my 25"" counters for prep bowls in back. Glad to finally have cutting board with a drip well. This will be my go-to board for everything. It has a wonderful natural cypress smell too
Yes, when new, oil it every day and less frequently once you've had it for a few weeks. Use John Boos Mystery Oil or their wood cream. Both work great and are great for oiling your wood cutting boards. Don't use regular cooking oil
How thick is the Hinoki board? And has anybody had any problems w/ warping?
A shopper on Mar 26, 2012
Best Answer:This Hinoki board is 1 1/2"" thick. I haven't heard of any problems with warping; in fact, this is a very popular board. Here is a review I found on a foodie blog regarding Hinoki boards:""Hinoki is my number one choice! I have owned a few boards before of different types and Hinoki out does them all no question. I have found my knives hold a substantially keener edge longer working on it then any other wood I have used."
