Hi, folks.

A couple of questions, please. How important is it to use an end-grain cutting board as opposed to a side-grain? Can't figure out how much difference there is for using high-end knives. How much do the end-grain ones help? Are side-grain ones harder on the cutting edge?

And thanks very much for your help on these boards. I really appreciate it.

That was a lot of interesting reading! One of the interesting comments about the side grain/edge grain was that they were more prone to splintering, which I had never thought of. I own a few end grain boards and love them. My edges do seem to last longer than when I was using a Bamboo board. The end grain does seem to show less cut marks since the fibers can move easiest out of the edge, face and end grain boards.

Boardsmith, Boos, and LoneStar Artisans all make really nice boards from what I have seen/handled/used.
