Hiba (Thujopsis dolabrata) is a conifer native to Aomori Prefecture in Northern Japan - it makes the perfect material for knife use as the timber is soft and forgiving to Japanese steel, and it’s loaded with moisture-repelling oils that prevent saturation and ward off nasty bacteria as well as evil spirits. It also smells divine. Single, solid slabs of wood don’t warp or split. This cutting board is perfect for chopping and prepping any meal.
Allow to dry naturally after washing.
