A practical and beautiful block for heavy cutting and chopping, this chef-grade cutting surface will update your kitchen to professional status. Made of durable, organically grown bamboo, it was crafted with the finest hand-selected bamboo stalks. Bamboo is one the best surfaces for knives and is naturally antimicrobial and antibacterial. Core Bamboo's bright, beautiful bowls, trays, utensils, and accessories are made from one of the most remarkable resources on earth. When bamboo is planted, its roots spread and automatically regenerate themselves. Plants are ready to be harvested in as little as four years. Antibacterial by nature, bamboo is also unusually durable and lightweight--stronger than maple yet lighter than oak, making it both a stylish and a practical choice for your kitchen and table.
