I use a board scraper. It have it around anyway, gives me a bit of peace of mind.

Yeah, I have a board scraper that is just begging to be beat on. Feels almost like a spring temper stainless... near indestructible. LOL It is good to know that if I crush the garlic with my knife out of habit that I most likely won't hurt it though. :)

I just use a cheap stainless steel cleaver instead, especially if I'm smashing a bunch of garlic. I could probably get away with using a more delicate knife, but with a cheap cleaver - or a heavy one - I enjoy smashing the crap out of those garlic cloves :)

Don't you just love when you have a runner that flies out from under the smashing implement? lol

There have been times I have had to hunt down "escapees"... ;)
