Been using the typical slide out cutting board that one finds in their lower kitchen cabinets but its time to get something better.....can't believe we've put up with it for all these years. My wife and I like to cook so we recently bought several Miyabi Fusion knives, I know there considered middle of the road compared to many I see here on the forum but that's ok, they are working out nicely for us. Anyway back to the cutting board, I see many to choose from and looking for something fairly large like 18"x24" give or take a few inches.....I've read mixed opinions regarding bamboo as many claim its to hard for our type of knives and could damage them if were not careful. I also see one's made from Cypress wood I think that many seem to like but also with mixed opinions, the same with teak wood.....most likely will be the case with any of the cutting boards I'm finding ha ha. Thinking to keep it simple and go for something like a Boos cutting board end grain type, they seem reasonable in cost and look nice. Were looking to keep it more on the affordable side at around $100-$150 range....be nice to go for one of the custom one's I see here on the forum with multi types of woods but not wanting to spend that kind of coin right now, were looking to do a complete kitchen re-do so bottom line for now is something that works for the time being and doesn't screw up our knives.....suggestions welcome and thanks.
