Shun 10M Anniversary Hinoki Cutting Board



Hinoki is a type of Japanese cypress renowned for its beauty as well as its delicate, natural fragrance. The Hinoki-Cypress has a unique force-absorbing density that protects your knife blades from chipping. Used in a cutting board, this medium-soft wood “gives” as you cut, helping to preserve the edges of your fine Shun cutlery. Quite simply put, hinoki is the perfect cutting surface for all your Shun knives. This unique D shape size offers the right surface for all general-purpose cooking tasks.
