A glass, marble, or metal cutting board or granite counter top will do that. Use only wood. If you DO use a wood cutting board already, I don't know what to tell you.

Stop cutting rocks with your knife. Yes, I know it's sharp, but the rocks will damage your blade.

As @nastyducky has mentioned, use appropriate cutting boards. Also, be sure you use your straightening steel after every use as well

Please tell me you hand wash those knives and NEVER put them in the dishwasher...

@durkzilla: this comment makes me wish I had several shill accounts so I could vote it up over and over again.

Like everyone has mentioned, don't use glass or ceramic cutting boards. I'd even go as far as saying never put a knife in the sink. If it's dirty, leave it on the side of the counter next to the sink. BTW, who else uses your knives? I went down to visit the in-laws and was horrified to discover one of the nicer knives I had given them had a huge chunk out of it. And they had left it like that! How does that even happen??? They blamed it on the maid.
