The Boos gives me my desired work surface height and due to it's mass is less subject to movement. Poly is not all that gentle on knife edges.

Yeah, I realize that other people have different needs. A commercial chef would be appalled at my knife collection! But it works for me now, and I upgrade as cashflow permits.

Cash flow can be improved by having sharp knives to cope with cheaper tougher cuts of meat

Such as? I need to learn these things! Maybe we need another thread for this. I just found out how cheap it is to buy ham and pork butts and cook them myself! I never knew they could be had for around $1/lb.

Pure tung oil is food safe. Not to be confused with tung oil varnish, which can be most anything.

in reply to "is tung oil safe? and " Is it from beef tungs ? Buy it from a wood working /bowl maker type store ,they sell it to guys that make salad bowls and such things,, it is from the Tung tree and has no tougues in it.
Without going to look I beleive mine says 100 % Raw Tung oil. google it ,it goes into the wood and sort of hardens up the cells whereas mineral oil will evaporate eventually if I remember rightly , I just pour a bit of each on the board and hand rub it in ,let it sit for a bit and towel of the excess, about three or four times a year.
I've been using it for decades and except for " THE VOICES " I am bumping along O K . Regards gage

I was joking about the beef tung. Next time I'll throw up the joke flag. Or maybe think of something more funny to say.
