If you want to keep your knives sharp, use a heavy-duty wooden cutting board. Wood does much less damage to the edge of the blade, compared to plastic and glass cutting boards. This cool new Teak Cutting Board is made of solid, sustainably harvested Costa Rican teak that is not only stylish, but gentle on knife blades as well. Teak hardwood is legendary for its unmatched strength and beauty and its high natural oil content makes it virtually impervious to the elements. It's the top choice for boat decks, outdoor furniture and now professional cutting boards too. With proper care, teak can last a lifetime.
