Kaufmann Mercantile – Walnut Cutting Board Review

Black Walnut Trencher | farmgirlgourmet.com

I was recently contacted by Kaufmann Mercantile about sharing their company with my readers.  I get a slough of emails daily asking me to share this or that, so I am quite choosey when it comes to saying yes.  Kaufmann Mercantile won me over almost immediately with their subject line: “Buy Once, Buy for Life”.  Our current environment is one of “throw away”.  Everything we buy these days seems to be upgraded to the hottest new version ever the instant after we purchase it.


I will admit, I fall victim to the newest shiny objects at times, but I also truly love my old, tattered, still working as good as the day it was bought, gadgets.  The pieces that have seen many hands over their years but still perform better than anything new you could buy today.

Enter this cutting board.  Yes its new, but it will be a piece that I will give to my son or daughter someday.  It’s handcrafted of Black Walnut and is almost too beautiful to use.  The versatility of this board is amazing.  One side is completely flat for cutting anything your heart desires and the other is slopped with a ridge for collecting juices when cutting things like a succulent roasted chicken.

Kaufmann Mercantile was excited about sharing this piece of craftsmanship with my readers and agreed to give one away (see below).  How cool is that?  Also, if you sign up for their newsletter, you will receive $7 off your next order from the store that is chock full of quality artisan goods that are beautiful and lasting.


About the Trencher Artisan

In 1967, the independent woodworker who makes these boards started his move through various workshops like converted gas stations to perfect the wooden tableware and kitchenware items that eventually brought him to expand his business, train more employees and open a second shop. Read more….

So what do you say?  Want to win this beautiful cutting board?  Of course you do.  Fill out the form below to be entered.  You can enter DAILY – you know you want to!

    Too small. It is gorgeous and a great design. Needs to be something like 22″ x 18″, not 17″ x 12″.

    How beautiful! I love that it is something you can have forever, I really dislike how everything seems to be throwaway right now.

    My cutting boards have seen a lot better days. They should really be retired? If I should be lucky enought to win this board, they will.

    Love that wood. I use about 3-4 different cutting boards, none of which I particularly love.

    you would shudder to see what I have been cutting on for years, but as Julia Child always said “what goes on in the kitchen, stays in the kitchen”..or maybe that was Vegas. Either way I love the board

      Best of luck to you Kathy. I won’t say what my boards look like either. 🙂 Ok, maybe I will say that 1 was leftovers from a wood countertop my husband built 4 houses ago. My kids were infants. Ya. Old. Gnarly. 🙂 Thanks for entering. XOXOXO
