OverviewUse & CareFeatures

Your old edge-grain and hard plastic cutting boards are ruining your knife edges. Step it up with the Artisan Revere end-grain board that saves the environment and your knives' edges. Our end-grain boards are built right: to make your life easier. They keep your knives sharper, longer, are easy to maneuver, and they’re built to last a lifetime with minimal care.

Our Boards:

  1. Are handcrafted with meticulous attention to wood selection & joinery.
  2. Sanded smooth, soaked in food-grade mineral oil twice, dried, and finished with A/Rs Conditioning Paste. 

Cutting board care shouldn't be intimidating. Here are a few easy rules to follow to ensure your butcher blocks and other wooden products stay in great shape. 

8 Steps For Maintaining Like-New End-Grain Cutting Boards: 

  1. A dishwasher can destroy any wood product — hand wash only.
  2. No prolonged water exposure — avoid soaking in the sink.
  3. After use, clean with warm water, dish soap and a sponge.
  4. After washing, dry your board thoroughly with a towel.
  5. Store your board on its edge, not its rubber feet.
  6. Every 2-4 weeks, generously apply food-grade mineral oil with a paper towel.
  7. Apply conditioning paste the following day with included Applicator Pad.
  8. Serrated knives will scar your board. Cleavers can damage it. Avoid both.

End-Grain Cutting Board Specifications

Weight: 8-9 lbs.

EASY-GRAB HANDLES

Deep, wide, and well-buffed handle grooves make it easy to pick up and maneuver your board.

RUBBER FEET

0.5" tall rubber non-slip feet for safety and stability. Rubber feet: 1. absorb shocks, 2. keep the board's bottom dry, 3. provide an easier grip when moving, 4. increase board stability, 5. ensure your board NEVER slips. No more towel soaking & no more warped boards.

NO-SCAR END-GRAIN

Our boards are 100% rescued end-grain wood. That means your knife goes between the wood fibers when you cut, and your board won't scar or harbor bacteria. Healthier for you and your knife.

COMFORTABLE & SAFE

Every side, corner, and radius is completely softened and rounded by hand. This ensures easy maneuvering and that you never hurt yourself on an edge.

As Seen In The New York Times

We're so incredibly honored to have our brand-new rescued end-grain cutting boards written up by The New York Times! Here are a few snippets from Florence Fabricant's NYTimes article from 8/22/22.

"This Cutting Board Won’t Harm Your Knives"

"A good knife deserves a first-rate cutting board." 

"End grain is said to be the least damaging to knife edges." 

"Made from wood rescued from furniture manufacturing, these heavy boards sit on little nonskid rubber feet and have contrasting inserts that suggest Frank Lloyd Wright."

End-Grain: Perfect By Nature

End-grain American black walnut, black cherry, and hard maple are the goldilocks wood species for cutting boards. Walnut, with Janka hardness of ~1,000 lbf, cherry with Janka hardness of ~950 lbf, are gentle on knife edges. End-grain Maple at ~1,450 lbf, is slightly denser, but still significantly outperforms all face-grain boards (see our Specifications sketch above). These three woods will keep your knives sharper for longer.

Built Right

Obsessive focus is paid to building right. It starts with sustainably (and locally) harvested wood from Michigan. It includes top-of-the-line tracksaws, sanders, plainers, and joining equipment and extends to our deep attention to wood selection, seamless joinery and wood direction. We sand all surfaces until silky smooth. Your entire board is twice coated with food-grade mineral oil and then with our in-house board paste.
P.S. A $25 value tin is included with your purchase.

The Most Sustainable Board Ever

We have partnered with a local furniture shop to purchase Tier1 off-falls (unused end-pieces from their custom table and cabinet projects) to dramatically reduce our own carbon footprint. This rescued wood has a vastly lower carbon profile than FSC certified virgin lumber. We've also partnered with SWRM to produce a sustainability report, which is forthcoming shortly.

Amazing feel and beautiful to boot

Gorgeous and substantial piece! Cutting is a dream and I love knowing my knives are staying sharp longer. I initially bought it bc of its sustainability and was pleasantly surprised to discover how beautiful and usable it was as well. As a born and bred Michigander, I also love having a piece of home in my Los Angeles kitchen ;-)

SO smooth and beautiful

I never thought I'd ever write a review for a cutting board but this thing of beauty is worth it. It's hard to describe the amount of satisfaction I get out of it every single time. No matter what I cut through or how hard I cut, my knife lands softly on its ultra-smooth surface... I don't really understand what end-grain means but it's definitely the best kind of material to keep my knife sharp. Also I never kept a cutting board on my kitchen island until this day but it's looking so good, there's no point putting it away. This is my second purchase from AR and I love it! Keep up the good work!

Worth every penny!

Having used the chef’s knife for over a year I was so excited to get this cutting board. (I have one of the original versions released - slightly different pattern) I can honestly say I’m obsessed. It sits on my kitchen island as a permanent fixture because it’s just so beautiful (i have an open kitchen concept where this is visible from the dining room, family room and front entry way). But more than that the height and size is perfect. I’m nearly 6’ft tall and I hate crouching over low counters. And it never slips around no matter the mess I’m making. I loved the chef’s knife and I love using it even more now that I have this cutting board.

Easily the best board I've ever used

I own both the Chef and Paring knife and I just got this end-grain cutting board and it is easily the best board I've ever used (and I've used a lot of boards!). The quality is second to none and it's obvious that every design detail has been deeply considered.
I'm a cooking enthusiast and always in search of the best tools and Artisan Revere is proving to be that time and time again!

This cutting board is gorgeous. It looks so great on my countertop. Perfect compliment to the best knives. Artisan Revere is top notch!

Mindy - so glad you're enjoying your board! You're the best!!

We're getting some fridge magnets made with our 8 Tips for Maintaining Like-New End-grain Boards, and we'll get one sent out to you ASAP (it was in our note FYI).

What would you like to see from us next? Santoku? Nakiri? Tall petty/utility? Bread knife?
