360 Knife Block - Ebonized Walnut (Black)
Ebonizing is a natural reaction between iron acid (vinegar and steal wool) and the tannins in walnut wood creating a grain popping black.
Regular oiling with any mineral oil will keep your black block lookin fresh.
- Hand brush on the iron vinegar mixture we make in house and let it rest for 24 hours.
- The next day we lightly sand every side and re-apply a second coat of iron vinegar and again let it rest overnight.
- On the third day we apply the first coats of “The Good Stuff” food safe butcher-block finish.
- On the forth day we apply a second coat of finish, let rest 4 hours, then package.
Quarter Sawn American Walnut - custom veneered on to a super strong 11 layer Multi-ply core in Oregon just for us. Better use of solid wood resources, more consistent grain and color, better parts yield (less wood waste) longer lasting, stronger and all around stunning looking Walnut Wood.
Is it the same as the Bamboo one that America's Test Kitchen tested? Yes. Same magnets, same location, same heavy base, same weight, same cork bottom and same exact size, we cut and assemble each part exactly the same way as when we build with Bamboo.
