2.0 out of 5 stars Not Reversible, January 23, 2008
This block is beautiful until you turn it over. It is not stated clearly but the block is not reversible and the quality of the underside can include holes or knots (see below). I am happy with it but would not buy this block for the $'s if I was to choose again.

Quote directly from John Boos "There can be knot or hole in the bottom and this will not effect the durability of the cutting board. This board is also and end grain board which this is a common occurrence for the board to have the knots and holes as this one does. This board is not reversible that is why there can be knots to hole in the bottom. If the customer wants to return the board they will have to pay for the freight to be returned and a 25% restocking fee."

It is unfortunate if it is not made clear here that this block is not reversible. On the John Boos website the blocks are very clearly described as to which are reversible and which are not.

I just received mine and both sides can be used just fine. The only difference is that the underside has stated DO NOT USE- other than that the top and bottom are 100% identical.

This item is a natural piece of wood. What possibly woul dmake you think that any wood wouldn't have knots? I bought one for all of my family members and it was the biggest hit for xmas last year.
