Dreamfire® oak butcher block / cutting board with groove. Thoughtfully crafted to be the most functional board you will ever own with its multipurpose design. Alfred is an end grain constructed board. End grain boards are extremely durable and highly desired for their ‘self-healing’ properties. Each knife cut goes between the wood fibers, rather than cutting through them. These fibers close back up after the knife exits. Your knives are cutting on a naturally forgiving surface, keeping your knives edge sharper for longer. With the extra deep groove, you will no longer have that juicy piece of meat making a mess all over your countertop.
