“We started selling at farmers' markets and trade shows. That's when we saw first-hand that our boards make people happy. They can't believe they are hand-cut.”

Husband-and-wife team Mike Pararas and Kim Strassner know their way around knives. 
They both love to cook for both their three kids and guests—Mike on the grill and Kim in the kitchen—and channel that passion into their hand-made cutting boards.

Since my husband cooks as much or more than I do, I thought this cutting board personalized with our names would be a great Valentine's Day gift. I was so pleased when it arrived; it's sturdy and beautiful to look at, just like in the many photos people have posted in their reviews. We live in two places, so I plan to get another for our other home with the names reversed for another occasion. Something you might want to be aware of: because it says "If both names are below a total of 7 characters, they will be cut on a vertical board" in the ordering instructions, I assumed ours, which has 11 characters, would be cut on two sides of the board like in some of the pictures customers have posted. This was not the case; they were able to fit it all on one side. I would've liked it either way, and it doesn't look scrunched up being on one side or anything, but I would like to know if they would cut the characters on two sides rounding the corner of the board if one were to request that they do so. I really like the way that looks too! Also, be aware that the board gets dry and cracks form on the surface after washing, at least they do in the cold, dry winter here in NYC. I ordered the oil and am glad I did, but I'm sure you can get it cheaper elsewhere.

Our lively gift to our son and daughter-in law came broken.

Very upsetting the product came broken. The arrival of the product took sometime due to being custom made, leaving us no shopping time before Christmas to purchase another gift.
