25 lbs of quality and with hand groves makes for easy lifting. I never expected the fine quality of the two boards I purchased. Site does not specify manufacturer, "Catskill Craftsmen, Inc", so I had no way of knowing both boards came from same place until I opened the boxes. I also purchased the reversible end grain 16"x12". I have shun knives and must use quality end grain wood when cutting or chopping. Hard to believe after being aggressive chopping garlic and slicing foods there was not a mark on either board! Purchased mineral oil (as per co.'s instructions) and prepared boards. Not a big deal at all preping boards upon arrival. Easy cleaning with cloth and oiling as part of maintenance Cannot state product's life span, but based upon other reviews, if you take care of board (oiling), it should last for years. Order board and go buy mineral oil while you wait your board's arrival. Order arrived without any tracking/shipping notice.
