I don't think it looks smart at all. More future plastic landfill. Somewhat surprised by your choice, Steve. I'd have expected a more tree based solution.Steve Maskery":y6hvwnap said:I bought a new set of knives last year. Not these knives but this block:
The knives themselves are lovely, but the block, whilst looking smart, doesn't actually work very well.
There are two problems:
1. The knives are vertical, so when underneath a wall cabinet, I can't pull out the longer knives, so the block has to sit forward, where it takes up more useable space.
2. The small knife is forever falling over (and out), as the handle is heavier than the blade. If each knife had its own slot it would be OK, but there are just two slots for 3 knives each.
So I would say make the block angled forward rather than vertical, and, if you are cutting slots, give each knife its own slot.
As regards the bamboo skewers and hygiene issue, I don't see any reason why they could not be taken out and put in the dishwasher on a regular basis.
