Not bad; I'd still rather not use it for food, since if it did shatter, the food would be full of glass particles. I'll use a plastic cutting board, thanks.

Gee, minor fugue for Dan. That's what happens when things are well tempered. ;-)

Topspin - sssssss

Shadow - yeah, it'll take the edge off of a knife far too fast, but I was surprised that it took as much abuse from the glass cutter as it did.

I was installing a tempered glass shower door a few years back, and (I swear I didn't hit anything) it exploded in my hands. There were glass bits in the next room on top of the window casing. I wish I'd had a video of that for youtube.

Outcome - I called Kohler, began to tell the customer service lady what happened and before I got to the "glass exploded" part, she said "Oh no! were you hurt?" I having come from the electrical equipment industry, where the first and only mandated reflex is to deny any responsibility for anything, this was a very pleasant surprise. The new door was delivered first thing the next morning. I'm now a complete Kohler fan.

Re: Kohler. It's amazing how a small customer service difference completely changes things.
