    I stumbled upon the article about The Tree Of Life – Aomori Hiba native to Japan, which has antibacterial and anti-allergic qualities and slowly was getting interested in buying a cutting board made of such wood. The quality and craftsmanship are superb. Cutting on this thing is a dream, and I do find myself grabbing it at home most of the time, leaving all our olive wooden boards to dust. This board feels great on my knives, smells wonderful (but doesn’t transfer anything to the food, is absolutely beautiful, and judging from the feeling I so far had, it should last a long, long time.

    Consider do not treat it until odor is gone. Solid yet not heavy wood – not harsh to blade. The slim shape made it easy to keep chopped stuffs and chopping area. Do buy the rubber feet – must have. Missing groove did not bother me as I originally worried. Compare with the Konosuke at half the price, I feel they are same return over investment. It did not curl after months – some times less of care due to young kids.
