Michigan Maple Block End Grain Chopping Block

Hey all! So, for Christmas, I wanted to get my dad a good chef's knife and a good cutting board to go along with it. My budget for the cutting board is around $50 - $60. I am in college, and don't have a lot of money, but I want to get him the best that I can afford because he enjoys cooking but has never had any quality cookware.

I'm going to get him a Japanese Gyuto, and from what I've read, the VG-10 steel that they use can chip more easily than knives made with softer metals. Most people suggest an end-grain wooden cutting board. So, I set off to find one, and many of the ones I've seen suggested were close to the $100 mark or above, which, unfortunately, is out of my price range. However, I found this end-grain chopping block on Amazon for $53, and it seems to have good reviews. I just wanted to ask if any of you are familiar with this chopping board or with Michigan Maple Block?
