I'm considering buying a chopping board as a present for somebody (just got new knives, but I think they still have a ceramic chopping board! Silly...). Anyway, on amazon (uk) there are quite a few olive wood chopping boards, and I haven't seen them mentioned in the past chopping board threads. E.g. Olive Wood Chopping Board - 45cm: Amazon.co.uk: Kitchen & Home
I think they look quite pretty, irregular shape and all, and are quite reasonably priced, but does anybody know if they're any good? It does say it's a 'very hard wood' as a pro, although I thought a board which is too hard is bad..
Any comments would be much appreciated. Thanks!
