Shun Hinoki Board

Made by Japan's leading blade manufacturer, this large cutting board is designed to protect the finest cutlery while cutting and help keep your knives sharp for years to come. The board is made of Hinoki, a medium-soft wood that adeptly conceals minor cuts and scratches. Hinoki wood, or Japanese cypress, has natural anti-bacterial properties that make it ideal for kitchen prep work. The straight, subtle grain of Hinoki makes this stain-resistant board attractive enough for use at the table as well as in the kitchen. Hinoki wood is resistant to rotting and fungus growth, and has a naturally fresh citrus fragrance. The spacious cutting surface provides plenty of space for the biggest jobs. Made in Japan.

Awesome Board!
November 22, 2013
I got this board last week and I've used it almost every day since. I LOVE it. I know another reviewer was complaining about the size but this was exactly what I was looking for. Plenty of surface area for any job at hand and plenty of room to move things closer to the edge and still have room to continue working. It's also very light weight which is a plus.
Pros: Durable, Easy to Use, Quality, Easy to Clean, Size, Shape, Weight

Way Too Big
June 13, 2013
Based purchase on (1) saving the edges on my excellent collection of Shun knives and (2) on the measurements listed online. Did not want a huge cutting board but that's what this is. It measures 3 inches longer and nearly 3 inches wider than indicated. Also slightly thicker but that is not a problem. This board is as big as the gigantic one I use for turkeys! But, it is lightweight (a good thing) and very pretty. Does it help preserve knife edges? Don't know, I sent it back.
Pros: Quality, Weight
Cons: Size
