The boards are handmade from about 400 pieces of wood. With end-grain boards you cut into the end of the board, rather than across the wood fibers. It’s like chopping into the end of a very tightly bound paintbrush. This is better for your knives, faster for chopping, and the board doesn’t show marks or chip as readily. Studies show wood is as safe, if not safer, than plastic.
