Rated 5 out of 5 by Boywithapple from Perfect Knife BlockI have received so many compliments on this knife block. I love how it looks on my counter and it saves me a lot of space compared to the usual chunky knife blocks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by scottredman65 from Smart and StylishThe Schmidt Brothers knife storage block exceeded my expectations. The grains of the wood combined with the clear cover really show off my knife collection - and keep everything nicely organized.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MWsquared from Long awaited additionWe had been looking for a new knife storage apparatus for some time and we couldn't find something that would look excellent on our counter. We came across this one and immediately fell in love.

Rated 5 out of 5 by boomlala from Perfect Size and Shape for Limited Counter SpaceTitle says it all - this looks fantastic on my black quartz and doesn't have a huge footprint. I prefer the vertical shape as opposed to the typical knife blocks that jut out awkwardly into the countertop and take up unnecessary space. This one is not only sized right for a 7-pc set, but it also displays the cutlery beautifully.

Rated 5 out of 5 by smithie from Awesome!I bought this block in my local store yesterday. It is a beautiful and functional piece. Plexiglass is thick, magnets are very strong, it looks sharp on my kitchen counter. Price is appropriate, too. Very happy with my purchase, definitely recommend.
