Has anyone used one and if so are they good? I would use if mainly for cutting veggies, no proteins. I know hinoki is a form of cedar, which is soft so I would be concerned about scratches.

They aren't rock hard, but I have not had a serious issue with gouging it.

Thanks for the link. Not a lot of info and a bit on the expensive side.

Here is a link to the actual boards we sell. They're nice and the wood is clean. Smells like cedar when you first use them and they are really good on edges since the wood is not super hard. http://www.chefknivestogo.com/wasabi.html

I kind of wish they had feet on them but then you couldn't use the flip side.

Mine still smells like cedar wood. I can smell it from rooms away. Sometimes I literally have to put it in a drawer or closet, because the smell keeps me up when I try to sleep. But maybe I'm just a freak? I have a sensitive nose.
