The Viking Acacia End-Grain Board provides durability, practicality and beauty. Made from Acacia hard wood, the natural oils of the wood make the cutting board naturally resistant to water and bacteria. The board uses the end-grain of the wood, giving it a fibrous cutting surface that will let your knifes edge glide between the fibers instead of cutting across long grain boards, minimizing wear on both your knives and the board. The generous 20" x 14" size of the board makes it the right surface for slicing a chicken or roast and larger meats, such as whole turkey. It is also a great prep station for slicing and dicing vegetables, whether it’s for a small meal for two or a large family dinner. The beautiful end-grain cuts of the Acacia board create a natural contrasting patchwork pattern that is unique to each board and also can be used as a great piece for serving tapas and hors d’oeuvres.
