A top-of-the-line cutting board. Made of gorgeous Acacia hardwood, this Square End Grain Butting Board is functional and beautiful due to its rich, shimmering colors. Unlike traditionally made boards, end grain construction is less dulling to cutlery because the wood grain direction accommodates cutting instead of resisting it. Wear and tear is minimized on both cutlery and on the board, giving more longevity to all your cutting tools. This multi-functional board serves as a prep station, cutting and serving board to satisfy all your kitchen-needs. Decorative functionality at its finest, it's what you deserve.
**Use & Care**
Wash Ironwood Gourmet products in warm, soapy water and thoroughly rinse with clean water. Do not soak. To dry, prop up off of counter to allow all surfaces to air dry evenly. Wood products should never be washed in the dishwasher.
After drying, rejuvenate and protect the wood by rubbing it down with Ironwood Butcher Block Oil. Apply the oil liberally and allow it to soak in thoroughly before use. Regular application of our Butcher Block Oil will prevent cracking and preserve the rich natural colors of the wood.

I will say this, however - because it's important to keep in mind. If you're here, you may be looking at this because it's an END GRAIN cutting board, and end grain cutting boards are supposed to be a bit easier on the edge of your good knives than long grain boards, and much easier on them than plastic boards or mats. Problem is that end grain cutting boards generally have to be big and thick, so they're both unwieldy and expensive.
Generally speaking, this is all correct. But keep in mind, Acacia is a VERY hard wood - it's almost twice as hard as walnut, cherry or maple. More eco-sensitive, since it's more of a grass and it grows very quickly, but that hardness is undoing a lot of the point of buying a board like this in the first place. So what I would recommend is that if you have a normal Western-style knife - Wusthoff, Sabatier, normal thick, hearty, etc. - they'll be fine with a board like this. But if you happen to have a very thin, very sharp (often very expensive) carbon steel japanese knife, you really need to pair that with something made from Walnut, Maple, Cherry or another non-poisonous (check first on exotics!) relatively soft wood, it it should be at least 1.5in thick.
For the vast, vast majority of people, this is going to be perfectly fine. But for the more delicate japanese knives, go for something more traditional.
From my point of view, this is a problem with quality and not my ownership. I oiled it every week with Boos butcher block oil. Always dried the block after using and washing.
Contacted customer service and they replied back basically saying screw you. (They said it's passed the 21 day return warranty... 21 days, how generous of them.) Zero stars. The board is unusable now and I've wasted my money.
I’ve never been much of one for wooden cutting boards, but now that I’m learning how to take care of them I’m loving my wood. I just have to keep reminding everyone that they don’t go in the dishwasher. I’ll definitely be getting more of these wooden cutting boards, I need different sizes.
Finally, according to the Amazon rep I spoke with, there is no guarantee after month long return period. I will look for something else that will last longer...
The edges of the board are also tapered and rounded. While I think this looks good, it's not great for maximizing the surface area that can be used for cutting.
The hole in the corner is a good idea if you have a hook or other such rack to hang it from.
Overall, I don't regret buying it but would rather it was bigger (or smaller) and flatter. In my opinion, it's a "baby bear" board but I was looking for a "mama" and "papa".
