Inspired by the shape of the bamboo stalk, this board will stand out from others for its unique design and practical size. Bamboo is one of the best surfaces for knives and is naturally antimicrobial and antibacterial. Apply mineral oil occasionally to the surface to maintain the board's vitality. 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.
