Hasegawa produces signature wood-core cutting boards which are lightweight and rigid. The soft surface is suitable for delicate Japanese knives, and ultimately great for any kitchen knife.
The Soft Cutting Board cushions and absorbs the slicing & cutting strikes of your knife. This preserves your blade’s sharpness, making your cooking experience a joy.
The wood core makes it 30-50% lighter than other solid plastic cutting boards. Handling the cutting boards becomes much easier, leading to better hygiene and maintenance. Also, the risk of injury is lower if you drop it.
It does not easily warp or bend under long-term use, especially when using board-risers. Furthermore it can withstand high-temp washing without warping. It is always stable and dish-washer safe.
The soft materials applied to the surfaces make it very blade-friendly, which helps maintain a sharp blade on knives. Also, the grippy surface prevent ingredients from moving when cutting, suitable for delicate cuts!
