When you pay a fortune for a good board, problems like this can make you hesitant to want to throw them out for another one. Frank Howarth recently posted an inspirational process video for a repair job he did on some rather large sushi cutting boards for a local restaurant.
Alright men: the votes have been cast, and the safety razor is the way to go. I got my first one as a gift from a buddy and have used it ever since. They're significantly cheaper, easier on the environment, better for travel, and generally make you feel like a badass...
