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.
CAUTION: the side for fish and meat has a cartoon depiction of a pig, which customers from some cultures may find unsuitable for a cutting board.
