The heartwood is dark red-brown and attractive when polished.

Acacia is a smart choice for a cutting board. Many boards, whether they're plastic, glass or stainless steel, are not only noisy but will also damage your knives. It's versatile – part of the beauty of this type of wood is it can be used as a serving platter after being used as a cutting board
Acacia's isn't scratched as easily as some other wood and its water-resistant properties mean it won't warp readily and is highly resistant to fungus. Acacia is naturally antibacterial, and is therefore safe to use for preparing or serving food.
