I'm not sure what my walnut board is. It's a Chicago Cutlery that I got a long time ago. I have another thicker walnut that might be end cut but that's tucked away somewhere. I'll have to dig that one out. I have a crappy cheap (I think it was free) poly board that I use for poulty, except when hacking through bone. I have another bamboo board that I use for red meats.

What I have will suffice until after the kitchen remodel next year. Then I'm going to town on my wish list!

See the difference? Edge grain (left hand picture) is along the length of the board and end grain is the end of the board.

Oh now you're purposely just toying with me! I've been looking at the Boos boards lately (guess it went along with wanting new knives ).

And then of course you have to get one or two of these to match your new cutting board....

Yup! A Bloodwood 24" or longer is on my wish list. But I was going to wait until I decide on the cabinet colors before ordering since I would like it to "compliment" the surrounding. ha!

First build your dream kitchen, then add the matching decor. BladeSmith, or the like, will forever await your business.

Got the Apex on Thursday and the Tojiro on Friday. Love both of them! I was able to sharpen my Wusthof santoku to shave paper. I've had that knife a long time so I can't be sure if it was able to do that when I first bought it. The Tojiro 240mm gyotuo is very very sharp, able to shave paper right out of the box (I couldn't help myself). I used the Tojiro to prep dinner on Friday and Saturday. It was great!

Excellent. Tojiros usually have a very sharp factory edge. Slicing paper: This is mostly slicing as opposed to pure , but it's a good Curtis Chung .

If you put an EP 800 grit edge it may not push cut without using the EP polishing tapes. You can bypass the tapes and do a little stropping with .5 micron chromium oxide and push cutting will be no problem.
