Hinoki wood is renowned for its beauty, and delicate fragrance. Used in a cutting board, this medium-soft wood “gives” as you cut, helping to preserve the sharp edges of your fi ne Shun cutlery. Quite simply, hinoki is the perfect cutting surface for all your fi nest knives.
The wood for Shun’s hinoki products is grown in Japan and is Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) Certifi ed for sustainable forest management practices. In addition, all of our hinoki products are made from wood resulting from forest thinning, which is required to maintain healthy growth.
