beautiful Japanese blonde wood
The woodworkers of Tosaryu are world-renowned for mastering and personalizing the skill of handmaking, or "monotsukuri," specifically and most notably of creating beautiful Japanese Shimanto Hinoki Cypress objects with elegant simplicity and high functionality. Hinoki Cypress has a distinct fragrance akin to pine in maintaining its rich oils beyond a 3-6 month drying process, after previously absorbing CO2 over a 100-year period. This high oil content not only smells lovely, but has both a strong antibacterial property as well as being anti-fungal, aiding in resistance to board decomposition as well as helping food integrity and taste. This is a highly durable board which naturally keeps your knifes sharp as well as concealing minor board cuts with its medium-soft wood and straight, subtle grain. It's also naturally stain-resistant, thus making it a simple transfer from prep to gorgeous table serving! You can feel excellent in purchasing Tosaryu's objects in their sustainable methods of production and extreme care in resourcefulness utilizing their local resources - for the heart of their mission is loyalty to their surrounding forests and lakes. Their creations are carbon offset products which prevent global warming through forest maintenance in Kochi Prefecture, and we adore them for placing Mother Earth first.
