I stumbled upon Monnier Woodcraft when I was poking around Instagram.

I was really blown away by some of the designs Clint was making. There are some really intricate patterns and genuine artistry in these beautiful cutting boards and chopping blocks.

I followed him and soon enough I found myself liking and commending on almost every post he made.

It turns out that we have a lot in common, especially our love of STEAK!

A few weeks later, he messaged me and asked if I would like one. FUCK YES I WOULD! I love how Instagram brings people together.

He made me one of his really amazing brick designs that made my jaw drop, and shipped it out to me.

Each block comes ready to rock, and with a nice letter from Clint and simple instructions for how to care of the piece.

I love the metal emblem of his brand on the side too. Really classy, nice looking stuff.

I was so excited to tell you guys about this gorgeous craftsmanship that I haven’t even used it yet. I can’t wait. I’m sure you’ll be seeing it in tons of my home cooked steak pics in the future.

Kooq Cutting Boards & Chopping Blocks

Kooq sent me an awesome joined bamboo chopping block to test out with my meats here at the Food Research Lab. Here’s a short unboxing video:

Kooq uses bamboo for their boards. I love bamboo cutting boards, because they’re durable and tough, yet still great for preserving blade integrity and sharpness.

They’re also really easy to maintain and can take a beating without warping or losing solidity. Finally, they’re budget friendly. This big beast will only run you about $70 on Amazon.

I cooked up one of my porterhouse steaks and gave it a nice slicing on the board.

I couldn’t be happier. I highly recommend this brand for all your cutting and chopping needs.
