Created by a Danish architect and designer, this kitchen knife block is a welcome depature from clunky, old-fashioned or over-designed contemporary versions. The elemental form is both sculptural and practical, allowing for the storage of approximately 12 knives of varying size, while it takes up little counter space. Constructed of aluminum rods and solid beech wood harvested from FSC certified, sustainable forests. An occasional light application of mineral oil is all that is required to maintain the natural finish. The Knife Block functions best for storing medium to large sized knives with bolsters, maximum blade length 10".
