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.

                I purchased this as a wedding gift for a dear friend. As soon as she and her new husband got it they called me to thank me for such a thoughtful and beautiful gift. She sent me a picture and it was exactly as I had pictured. She told me it was perfect, well made and she was thrilled.

                So happy with the board, but very disappointed in the cutting board oil. Beware before buying. The bottle was broken, and although packaged in a zip lock baggie, leaked out in its entirety. Best bet is to buy that separately and not together.

                  High-quality workmanship on this personalized cutting board, which is quite sturdy. The beautiful maple wood is over an inch thick, so I don't think it'll ever warp. My cousin's names were perfectly carved into the wood, and they said they're going to use the back side so they can keep it out on their kitchen counter : )

                  I was very disappointed- my order was correct but the personalization was sent incorrect. There was little done on uncommon goods' end to make it right other than to send out a new one. This was embarrassing as a gift-giver. Would NOT recommend.

                    We received this from our close friends and neighbors who we spend a lot of dinners with prepping, cooking and eating together. They combined their last name (Leeuw) and ours (Dietschi) and gave us the LEETSCHI cutting board for Christmas. It was such a great idea and such beautiful construction! That night I ordered them a LEETSCHI board for themselves. They were so so so happy to receive theirs.
