Q: What is the difference between MANAITA (Japanese chopping board) and European cutting board?
A: They are from different types of wood. The hardness of wood is different.
There are a wide variety of wood types, even they are from natural trees.
There are various characteristics depending on the tree type, like light trees, heavy trees, soft trees, hard trees, light-colored trees, dark-colored trees, etc.
When processing woodwork products, it is important to consider the characteristics of such tree types. By selecting the wood which suits your purpose and applying the optimum processing, you can create a product that is easy to use.
For example, sturdy and durable hard wood is used for furniture. However, hard wood is not suitable for MANAITA since it will damage the blade of the knives.
For these reasons, soft wood like "Gingko trees" which is gentle to blades has been selected for "MANAITA" for a long time in Japan.
The "Ginkgo tree MANAITA" can give you a smooth touch as if the blade sticks to it, also it makes a pleasant sound when you cut the ingredients.
On the other hand, "Cutting boards" are mainly made of sturdy wood which can withstand serrated knives such as bread knives.
The best idea is to use the board suitable to your purpose,
“Soft MANAITA for cooking knives, hard wood cutting boards for serrated knives”.
We only use carefully selected and reliable Japanese Gingko trees.
The trees grown over many years give us wood with a variety of rich personality and patterns. Its quality will be understood only by connoisseurs. At woodpecker, we purchase high-quality wood from a reliable lumber shop, and skilled craftsmen carve out only the part suitable for our products from the solid board to manufacture MANAITA.
