Arezzo Handled Cutting Board - 35.5 cm Diameter - Handcrafted in Italy - Pewter & Cherry Wood
This cherry wood and pewter handled cutting board, which can also double as a cheese board, is reminiscent of the earliest cutting boards, which were fashioned from cutting a 'round' from a softwood tree stump for cutting on and, in fact, eating off.
These early spheres were thought to have been called 'trenchers' after the stale rounds of bread people historically ate off as early plates, which these wooden rounds replaced.
Today a good cutting board, of naturally sanitary wood, like cherry, is an essential piece of a well equipped kitchen, in fact most households find a use for more than one. Cherry wood has been used for making furniture since time immemorial, owing to its, warm, beautiful tones, which gives it a natural elegance.
Such a much used part of the kitchen toolbox should be looked after to ensure its posterity - never soak it in water or expose to extreme temperatures, just a gruff scrub of the wood with a brillo pad, with an occasional sanitisation with lemon, salt or vinegar - never bleach, and an occasional buff with oil to prevent drying and cracking of the wood.
The pewter handles will age gently along with the wood without any special treatment.
