    Well, I have not used this new Ueda board just yet, but have been using smaller Asahi boards for about three years now. James' description is that Ueda board is a little softer than Asahi board.

    So I think if it is for normal cutting, slicing, it will hold up fine. It should be fine for small mincing and bone chopping work, but it would depends on how gingerly your hands are. These boards can be sanded to clean up surface, so even though it has been handled roughly, it could be brought back to life.

    That knife is Shigefusa mioroshi deba 210mm.

    The bucket holds the equivalent of maybe 2 trays of ice. I made a bit in advance and put in the freezer in baggies, and then started it a bit before the party and put the ice into a cooler each time the bucket filled. It worked out really well -- I wound up with half a (small) cooler of ice left over at the end.

    It seems like a worthwhile purchase at this point, as we can run it prior to holiday dinners, etc. so there is ice for people who like it.

    Montezuma, I bow down in envy. I was notified of the date/hour they would be available, along with tips on how to select the quickest button to purchase the thing. I was too slow. You're right, a few minutes and they're gone. I know they're expensive, but, to me, well worth it.
