This is an awesome product. It is glass and can be displayed as well as used for cutting whatever you normally use a cutting board for. I purchased some Vikings knives from Amazon and will be gifting these to my bf for his bday. It's a great way to say happy boirthday and I could really use your help in the kitchen during holidays :) It also comes with a display stand for those of you who don't want to use it. I highly recommend it. It arrived pretty fast (I think it took about 3 days from the day I placed the order). Happy Deals shopping!
