    Peter,

    I will probably be shot down for this but my understanding is that anything other than a wooden board will take the edge of knives like nobody's business.

    There are probably food hygene implications though if you use a wooden board.

    Try perspex?

    So long as you are using it a flat hard surface it will not break, most hardwear stores have it, Homebase, B&Q, Focus, they will probably have it in the sizes you want. Easy to clean with bacterial soap and should not blunten knifes any more than wooden boards would.

    Try "talc" not the powder, similar to perspex but thinner and flexable.

    Probably cut through it to easily though, it's about 1mm thick.

    Failing all that, a stainless sheet of metal cut to size which will cost more than both together but will last forever.

    They are now saying that as soft plastic boards sort of 'heal' they can trap bacteria in them which can be let out the next time the old scar is cut through. As has already been said, this is leading to wooden boards becoming more popular.

    Having said that, I get plastic boards from Ikea, they are so cheap as to be almost disposable.

    You should be able to get PE flat sheet from engineering supplies.
    I never understood what is meant by perspex, if polystyrene is meant,
    that is brittle as hell and can crack easily. If one means Polycarbonate that could be useable. PE is better though. Polypropylen would do also.

    Plastic blenders have already made plastics with antibacterial additives.
