Ikegawa Mokuzai Hinoki Cutting Board

by Ikegawa Mozuzai


This cutting board is made of Hinoki wood (Japanese cypress wood), which is a relatively soft type of wood that is quite gentle to the blade edge. It tends not to absorb the scent of food, ensuring better hygiene and cooking pleasure in your kitchen. Hinoki wood emits a refreshing lemon-like scent and is highly rot-resistant. The Ikegawa Mokuzai boards use the finest Japanese Hinoki wood, and are beautifully made and polished in the Kochi prefecture of Japan. 

Made in Japan.

Wetting the surface of the cutting board with water before use makes it difficult to absorb the smell of food. Wash and dry in shade and safely store after use.
Hinoki (Cypress) has an effect of suppressing mold. However,

mold may develop if the board is chipped or left in prolonged contact with water. Avoid use dish dryer as it may cause the cutting board to warp.

Very good

This cutting board is pretty good i chose it because it splits the difference between a 7 pound cutting board and a 60 pound rubber cutting board. The wood is so soft sometimes my knife accidently gets stuck in it, the lemon-lime scent is subtle but refreshing. The wood also has a bonus of not staining or picking up garlic or onion scents. Recommend if you want a cutting board to not dull your knife and not want to spend 60 pounds on a soft rubber cutting board.

Great Board!

This cutting board is perfect for all my kitchen needs. Now I don’t have to worry about dulling my very expensive japanese knives and enjoy the smell of this board as well. Very happy with this purchase
