    If you want a good cutting board that is easy on your knife's edge go with a hinoki wood cutting board.
    I have a few and not only do they keep your knives sharper longer, they haves nice scent as well.
    Here's a link to some beautiful hinoki wood cutting boards sold at Tosho.

    I was kind of looking at those boards too. But since they are made of a soft wood, seems like the board would scratch/stain and pick up the smell of whatever is being cut on the board. For those who have used the Hanoki boards, would that be accurate?

    Any type of end grain boards should do the trick.
