    Hi
    I wonder if anybody have tried a hasegawa cutting board.
    How is it compared to other cutting board made of wood or plastic?
    At lastly do anybody know a retailer in Europe?

    I bought 2 from a local knife shop awhile back. I am really quite pleased with it. From my usage, it doesn't seem to dull the edges nearly as fast as plastic cutting boards.

    That being said, there are 2 things to note. The board stains quickly and isn't very easy to clean up. Also, the board can warp if you place uneven pressure on it for prolonged periods of time.

    How bad dose it warp? (How big are ur boards), I'm may get the 80cm,30cm
    Dose it stain easier than wood board and how easy is the cleaning?
    I have seen on some sites they have hasegawa cutting board scrapper that will help with the cleaning, do u have any experience with that product?

    Can't remember off hand... 40+cm by about 30cm if I'm not mistaken.

    I think it stains easier than wood, but that could be due to the fact that it is mono-coloured (no wood striations/grains, etc) , which makes it more visible.

    I have not bought the scraper, but I was told by the staff of the shop that using sandpaper yields the same results.

    I looked seriously at the Hasegawa, but went with the Hi-Soft from Yoshihiro instead and am quite happy.

    I'm trying to remember why I decided on the Hi-Soft instead. I think it boiled down to size--the Hi-Soft would fit in my cabinet, but the Hasegawa was either way smaller than I wanted or was a little too big to fit. I doubt you can go wrong with either.

    For me the size is not an issue ( thinking of buying in 2 sizes). Done too much research on cutting boards :(
    Found anothe promising board, asahi cutting board. So I started another thread to see which one is the better option.:)

    Asahi was on my list as well. Getting one in the US seemed problematic, so went with Hi-Soft instead.

    Oh, and I can relate to excessive research!
