Welcome to a new regular instalment, where we head over to Uncrate Supply to highlight some choice products. If you’ve ever come across our Huckberry Finds or Amazon Finds, then you pretty much know the drill: we choose a theme and then compile accordingly.
To kick things off, we’re bringing out the home chef inside of you by way of cookbooks, knife sets, ingredients, appliances, and more. It’s all featured on Uncrate and that means you can expect an elevated tier of craftsmanship and distinction alike. That’s just how they roll over there. Here we go.
Handmade from white oak and available in two sizes, Blackline Boards infuse culinary functionality with an artisanal flourish. A natural reactive process creates the dark, monochromatic colour, which is both food-safe and free of pigments. Display the board for decorative purposes or put it to use and watch as it develops a unique patina over time.

Meanwhile, this product is limited to 500 pieces (and individually numbered) so get one before it’s gone for good.
