Received this as a gift several years ago and just love it. It appeals to my sense of the absurd. Yes, it's a great conversation piece. However, contrary to some of the reviewers, I do actually use mine very often for making consistently perfect 1/4 inch dice or lovely 1/2 inch slices or whatever. It's so handy that I purchased another to give to an equally obsessive friend.
I've subtracted one star because the wood did start to split after just a few uses. Conditioning the board 2-3 times each year seems to have arrested the problem as it hasn't gotten any worse. Sometimes I wish the unit was a larger, but it is large enough for most of my tasks and is lightweight, so easy to use.
I definitely recommend this cutting board, but do suggest oiling it before it begins to split. And, of course, hand wash - wood doesn't belong in the dishwasher.
