Proteak's cutting board line, butcher block carts and table tops are manufactured from FSC-certified organic teak. Cutting boards are designed to provide you with a lifetime of beauty and enjoyment.
Proteak has designed its line of cutting boards to meet the needs of professional chefs and serious home cooks, as well as of those looking for kitchen accessories that are as aesthetically pleasing as they are functional. Proteak has introduced a compelling product line that challenges conventional thinking about cutting boards.
The fundamental difference in Proteak is harvesting – or thinning - young teak trees on their plantations to make room for other trees to grow to maturity. These younger trees have a greater proportion of lighter sapwood than mature teak trees and this fact accounts for the distinctive contrast with the darker heartwood. In terms of strength and durability young teak is essentially the same as mature teak. Rather than burning the thinnings or sending them off to Asia by the container-load, they've found a way to mill these smaller logs and turn them into the beautiful products you see here.
