Cherry wood bread board and crumb catcher grid

A good knife deserves a good cutting board.

In line with this motto, we offer not only excellent knives, but also finely grained solid cherry wood boards. The cherry wood used for this bread board comes from the northern slopes of Austrian and German forests. Before the board is made, the wood is placed in a steam bath to extract tanning agents and enhance its stability. This gives the wood a warmer, richer colour than we would usually expect from cherry.

Each board is cut from a single piece of wood. The result is a visible, lively and beautiful grain moving across the board, reflecting the varying growth patterns of the tree throughout the seasons. After being cut and ground, the wood is finished with a food safe, natural oil. The relatively soft surface of the cherry wood is perfect for finely honed knife edges and important for keeping blades sharper for longer.

This board comes with a close-fitting grid, a single piece of wood with carved ‘slots’  for crumbs to fall through, which fits neatly into a shallow channel in the top of the board. It can be useful if your bread is still warm, as it allows the bread to ‘breathe’ rather than to ‘sweat’. The board can be used with or without its grid.
