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 new line of cutting boards from John Boos & Co. that I am super excited about and it is called The New 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. This 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. I give it a good application about once a month. It just looks refreshed and new after oiling it. This 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.
