Good deal Tim I think ya'll like that stuff.
I just ordered a hydroma cutting board from Induscousa.com - you'll have to phone it in 800-347-4472. They sell the red-brown hydroma cutting board that Dave recommended in 1/2" and 1" thicknesses. The 1/2" thickness is 11 cents/sf while the 1" thickness is 21 cents/sf. I ordered a 1/2" thick board, 15" x 20" and it cost me $32 plus shipping. The Tandy Leather version is 12" x 12" x 1" and retails for $59.99 - the same size/thickness board from Induscousa.com is $30.24!!
What a wonderful idea! Thank you for sharing. I just received my first and only head knife, an inexpensive Tandy thing. It has a secondary bevel at about 16 degrees per side, something I think I will change when time allows.
I am also ordering a hydroma cutting board (18 x 24) and wonder if that is good or should I get a smaller/ larger one.
With such high praises, how could I resist? So, how about it gents?Yep! 6 stars out of 5 for Tim's knife and I also need to mention Dave's AEBL skiving knife, now in it's third year of use. Same story, it's the best one I have ever picked up. Design, sharpness, accuracy, all the best. 6 out of 5 stars there too! My continuing thanks to both makers. If they ever do wear out (not likely) I'll sure be in line for more. Do yourself a favor and see if you can talk these two into making one for you.
