The action that often follows the chopping up various edible ingredients is the transfer of the morsels onto a plate or into a pan or a pot. The Edge Board makes this simple task more efficient and less messy than the standard free scraping of diced vegetables and meat with your knife. A complex solution was not required of designer Thomas Merlin, but his creation is certainly enticing.
A panel of beech wood was gently beveled at two corners and a pair of smaller timber sections were added as buffers to these angled sides. When you've finished slicing your food on the cutting board, pick it up, tilt it with the barriers sloped downwards, and easily guide the ingredient through the gap of the Edge Board.
