I own several good kitchen knives. Two Kyocera ceramics, sharp and fragile with whimpy feeling handles, (my tomato knives) A Wusthof Classic Ikon 10" Chefs knife which I absolutely love. The most beautiful design lines. Perfect handle, wonderful balance, keen navigator, stealthy feel of absolute control thru any medium. Great edge retention. And my most recent addition to my knives, this Shun Ken Onion. While described as beautiful, well, you decide. Handle grip and feel, surprisingly good. While I prefer to work with the Wusthof, the Shun layered steel is in a world of it's own. It is by far the hardest, most durable edge I've ever used. (professional and private chef 25 yrs) This knife just cuts and slices and chops like no other. The steel is hard enough to maintain a sharper bevel than the German knives. Once again, expensive and nothing else like it!

John Boos Hard Rock Maple Butcher Block : The White House kitchen and premier restaurants prefer this 3"-thick hardwood chopping block, made from hard rock northern maple for exceptional durability. Protects knives from dulling and resists nicks, preventing bacteria. Crafted since 1887 by John Boos & Co. Hand-wash. Made in USA. Square butcher block is exclusive to CHEFS.

With quality second to none. Beautiful, perfect joinery. Heavy enough to never walk away while working. Assured confidence your precious knives are in happy land with every romantic musical "chink" sound your chopping makes, Boos Block is THE reference standard in excellence. Expensive and definately worth it. For the same money, the round one offers more working area. Your knives deserve it!
