About Chef's Block

Chefs Block launched at the end of 2013 with the aim of developing functional but beautiful chopping boards and butcher blocks, that would be valued by top chefs and home cooks alike. At first we only manufactured end grain chopping boards, but we quickly identified the need to manufacture a range of chopping boards and serving boards that could be used for both preparing and serving great food.

End Grain vs Edge Grain

When buying a new wooden cutting block, an important part of the purchase is to understand that cutting blocks are primarily classified as edge grain (long strips of wood fused together) and end grain (the checkerblock pattern).
