The swirling patterns and neutral yet warm tone of this wood makes it ideal for decor in any kitchen setting while the fine grain of walnut makes it durable and consistently hardening with time as well.

On the Janka hardness scale, Walnut ranks 1,010 lbf or 1,010 Janka. With this said, it is harder than cherry wood but not quite as hard as maple wood. On top of this, walnut wood also continues to harden further over time which is why walnut products tend to last for decades beyond other materials. With this said, your walnut cutting board is sure to be able to handle daily use and potential fall or water damage without bending, cracking ,warping, drying out, or chipping over time. This is what makes our boards better than others on the market without fail.
Walnut boards also self heal which means that unlike cheap wood or plastic boards, your walnut board is sure to stay cleaner and safer for longer. With lesser boards, deep grooves tend to occur on the surface from frequent use of chef’s knives on the material. These grooves trap food particles and contaminate food cut on it. That’s why having a self-healing board is so useful to prevent these food particles from ever contaminating your food or damaging your board at all.
Lastly, walnut wood is incredibly sustainable and cost-effective. The overhead cost to grow, produce, and use walnut wood is exactly what makes it a great material for countless industries and the perfect material for cutting boards and butcher blocks as well. This face grain will last for years to come but not break the bank.
