Deliciously Savvy received this product in exchange for an honest and unbiased review and all opinions are 100% my own. Regardless, I only review products that I am truly interested in for myself and my family and of course for sharing those reviews with my savvy readers. Thanks for stopping by and enjoy!

It is no secret to anyone that truly knows me that I am obsessed a bit with John Boos cutting boards. I just love them as they are true works of art and beautifully made and crafted. You can see the gorgeous John Boos cutting boards and butcher blocks in use on all of my favorite Food Network cooking shows including Chopped. There is a reason for this and it is simply because they are the best. That is why I had to tell you about a rustic and gorgeous line of cutting boards from John Boos & Co. that I am super excited about and it is called The 1887 Rustic-Edge Cutting Board Collection.

This is the American Cherry Rustic-Edge Cutting Board that I received. It is simply gorgeous and beautiful. This picture truly does not do this cutting board justice as it is so much prettier in person. I can say that this is a fabulous size as it is 21 inches long, 12 inches wide and 1 and 3/4 inches thick. This is a nice, thick cutting board that will last a lifetime if properly maintained. The Rustic-Edge Collection is available in 3 types of wood (3 sizes each)….. American Cherry, Northern Hard Rock Maple, and American Black Walnut.

You can see that rustic edging that makes this new line of boards unique. The Boos 1887 Rustic-Edge Collection was inspired by the original Boos® butcher blocks that were made from a solid piece of hardwood. The Boos® 1887 Rustic-Edge Design cutting board is as close to nature as you can get and each piece has a unique story. Each board is kiln-dried, with rustic edges and slight variances that make each one a “one of a kind masterpiece”. You can even count the age-rings. Some of their boards will have more grain than others and some will have knotholes, and discolorations. All of these features make each board beautiful, unique and full of character just like they made them since 1887.

Now Let’s Talk John Boos Board Care & Maintenance

It is also a good thing to talk about your John Boos Care and Maintenance. If you take care of this piece properly, and who wouldn’t…. then it is so worth taking the time to give your board a little love! It will last forever in return. I recommend purchasing some of the Boos Block® Mystery Oil and/or Boos Block® Board Cream. The Mystery Oil is a food-grade oil that easily absorbs and penetrates deeply into the grain of the wood to help protect, revitalize and moisturize the wood fibers. The Board Cream contains a natural, unbleached beeswax and food-grade oil formula. Board Cream is denser, thicker which gives a protective top layer to the wood surface against foods and liquids. It helps keep the water out and the oil in. I give my John Boos Boards a good application of mystery oil about once a month and once in a while an application of board cream to keep the oil in and the water out. It really makes all of the difference and is a must have item when purchasing your John Boos Board of choice.

A Little History On John Boos Boards:

John Boos & Co., based in Effingham, IL is one of the oldest manufacturers of premium quality foodservice equipment and butcher blocks in the U.S.A. Boos has been in business continuously since 1887. It was in his Effingham, IL blacksmith shop that founder, Conrad Boos first invented what would become the original Boos Block®. Having harvested sycamore from local wooded areas, and processed it in his sawmill, Conrad brought it to his blacksmith shop for finishing. That first block of sycamore slab placed on three legs evolved with sheer purpose of a block to absorb the shock of this smith’s hammer against the anvil. It was the local butcher, who having seen and admired Conrad’s block, became impassioned about owning a block for his meat market. Unknowingly, Conrad’s son, John, who having made and sold that first block to the local butcher, took John Boos & Co. into the infancy of the 125 year reign of serving customers in the commercial market sector.

  • MD Kennedy

    Boy does this cutting board speak to me! I love a good, solid wooden cutting board. I’ve seen this brand a lot on Food Network so it must be great.

  • Darlene Cruz

    I like wooden cutting boards. I had many different types of boards from plastic, glass, marble and wood and I must say wooden boards are the best. Never heard of this product will definitely look into this one. The review convinced me.

  • kate g

    I started off using a plastic cutting board, but that looked horrible after the first use. Then I tried a glass cutting board and that really dulled my knives. Then I tried a soft rubbery type cutting board, but that didn’t turn out well either. So I’m ready to try wood, even though it takes a little maintenance. These Boos cutting boards are beautiful.

  • Christa

    I absolutely agree that this is a quality product. I have never used one before (a John Boos Co. cutting board), but normally the thick ones made of natural woods are always of a higher quality and if they are using these in restaurants with mystery oil and creams, you just know that this is something you want to protect.

  • Melissa Storms

    They really are gorgeous boards. I love all three of the wood choices with the rustic edge. I think the black walnut is my favorite though.

  • Lynn Banducci

    There is something about the beauty of a fabulous wood cutting board ♥️ These are definitely gorgeous

  • Linda Manns Linneman

    These boards sound so nice. I am really in need of a good cutting board. I also like the idea of these cleaning products for them. Thank you so much for sharing

  • Cheryl Everitt

    Based on the review this 1887 Rustic cutting is definitely the one to have. Solid wood is a plus and the finish is awesome. Thank you.

  • Sandy Klocinski

    Awesome cutting board. Decorative as well as useful. I’ve heard nothing but good things about the brand

  • Deborah D

    My mom and I have been looking for a good solid wood cutting board and we’ve found it! She will love this!

  • Christa Sloan

    I love the thickness of the board, it looks like it won’t dent every time you use a knife incorrectly, and the board oil and cream look fun. I believe I will never use another brand again if I can afford Boos. I dont really like the rustic edge I prefer the more rounded edges, but I would take any board. 🙂

  • Donna porter

    I am in need of a new cutting board. Mine was cheap and split down the middle a few months ago. I must say the John Boos & Co. cutting boards are beautiful, great quality and I would be happy to own one!
