As low-maintenance as it is high-performance, bamboo is a prime surface for cutting, and it's naturally antimicrobial and antibacterial--not a dubious chemical in the mix. This chop block, handmade of durable, organically grown bamboo, features a grooved border for catching pesky crumbs and juices. 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.
