    Indeed, Canadian prices are utter BS. And shipping from US to Can is not a joke either. I bet it is going to be similar if not more expensive than from Russia and that's using USPS.

    I hated my boos boards. I had an edge grain and bigger end grain. Both came to me severely dry, they both cracked despite proper seasoning and cleaning and the edge grain board warped. I use them for my craft table now.

    I don't own a Boardsmith but they are very highly regarded.

    I do own several Omni boards ( https://www.etsy.com/shop/OmniButche...f=pr_faveshops ) and all are very beautifully made. Love every one of them. I know spending that kind of money on a hunk of wood can be a bit breathtaking but if you buy one exceptional quality board and take care of it, you will be handing it over to your grand kids one day.

    And staring it at for hours a day. Not sure if that's a selling point...

    I think the knife edge/cutting board debate is way overblown. I've used everything from edge grain to plastic to bamboo and me and my knives survived just fine. When I decided to buy a new board my knife edges were a very small consideration in my decision to what I was going to buy. I got a BoardSmith board, great board and great looks as well. I bought it more because I could get the size and wood I wanted and could finally afford something really nice. A big reason I chose BoardSmith as apposed to mass production boards was to help a small business man rather than give my money to another corporation. I could have got a board much cheaper off Amazon but I'd rather spend my money with David Smith.
