Description: hardwood cutting board.

Pros: wood construction, hardwood, good size.

Cons: price.

Conclusion: We have found that wood cutting boards are the best to use for keeping your knives in good shape, but there are different types of wood that work in different ways. Bamboo is a very strong wood but we have found that it is not the best for a cutting board. It is a little slower for cutting than walnut or other hard woods, but it will last a long time.

This board is made from maple so it will work a little faster with you knife than a bamboo board. This is a very nice board, solid, heavy and strong it should last a long time. Keep it clean and use mineral oil to protect the surface every once in a while.
