Do you guys have any interest in some Japanese Hinoki cutting boards? I have a couple good sources for them but I've always resisted picking them up thinking that they would not sell very well.

MARK <> I think it all boils down to how many cutting boards you actually sell. It doesn't seem like you go through that much stock. Obviously, price point is a factor, as well.

I would have interest in purchasing one. Any idea what you might be looking at in size and price?

I looked around. Looks like even a small Hinoki cutting board is going to sell for $80. Kramer has high end ones $300 and up.
Hinoki wood is in the cypress family. I know a little bit about cypress, since I inspect mushroom houses in Chester county PA. They all use cypress for it's moisture resistance and anti bacterial properties..
Kramer sells an 18" by 18" 1/2 inch thick board for $300. Ouch!
So Mark maybe post some tentative prices and sizes and see if it generates any interest.

A new board has been on my wish list so I'm interested to see what sizes/prices will be offered.

I'm interested as well. I want to try the Hinoki boards for some time but it seem quite expensive outside Japan.

I have a good lead on some nice boards from a small company. The owner's son used to work for Tojiro before he went back to his family's business and they make really nice wood products including high quality boards and other items that are not applicable to our store. I'm going to order some and see what happens.
