    I bought this as a gift for a foodie friend, but now I wish I had kept it! My friend does use it for cheese, but she also uses it as a platter for small bowls of dip, cookies, etc.

      Comments about Reclaimed Slate Cheese Board:

      This was a gift for a couple who have everything. They love cheese and we paired this board with a 3-month cheese gift service. Love the look and feel of the slate, plus the chalk is a clever addition. Only drawback was the first time they washed it, two of the four cork feet fell off (and that happened simply by rinsing it). Luckily, the couple had a glue gun and could easily fix it.

        This is a great item for small gatherings (if you have more than one, all the better). It is not something you would use for a large party, but even if you are 2-8 people in front of the TV, this is a great piece.

        gave to son in law to be who loves cheese; he thinks it's unique and practical. we've used it several times already-but found we need need something - maybe a tooth-pick - to clean cheese from between the slate squares.

              Love the concept of handmade slicer paired with a reclaimed slab of slate. Wish the slate were a bit more natural in outline...

              Will be great for cocktail parties. I know some of my guests will want to leave their own comments on it. I just thought it would have been bigger than it is but it will get plenty of use.

                I purchased for my mom. She is a great host and this was a great compliment to her party. Rather than just putting food on a plate, she can now add another touch with the chalk. Looks great with the cheese, fruits, meats and crackers on it.Sweepstakes Entry:joel[@]
