Columbus no Manaita to Stand (Chopping board stand)

This chopping board and stand set is essential to Japanese cooking. Japanese cypress, which is found in only a few countries including Japan, is known to be the ultimate material for chopping boards. It is distinctive for having just the right amount of resilience, making it easy to chop without damaging knives. It is also antibacterial and repels insects. Moreover, the unique aroma and wood sheen produce an upscale feel. Experienced carpenters use a hand plane to finish this chopping board, which can be planed again if the surface becomes bowed to make it like new, so the chopping board can be used for many years to come. In addition, the uniquely shaped stand dries quickly when wet and helps keep the chopping board clean and ready for use.
