Does the job.
The reason this is not 5 stars is because of one big thing - the dividers are NOT flexible and cork-like making it hard to fit the variety of sizes w/o the squeezing and crowding of handles, etc. Others have noted this as well and if you can over look that like I have, you will enjoy this product. The rubberish lining in the tray gives some nice friction. Overall, it suits my needs and does the job of keeping my knife blades from rubbing up against each other!
P.S. Container store, please update your online information to match the actual product.

The knife dock did not have the cork like material for the knife slots, just a hard plastic like the outer casing. There is a softer plastic under where the handles go but not continuing under the knife blade area. Not sure this will make the knives go duller sooner than a soft material like the cork or softer plastic? Disappointed the description was wrong or would have purchased the wooden version for $10 more. I believe that does have the cork showing clearly. The photo for the Grey dock looked like a dark colored cork but now seeing it in person it is the hard plastic. Won't send it back as not really worth the shipping charges to do so! Bummer. It does fit in my narrow drawer so that is fine and holds the knives in place but I have 4 bigger knives and a few smaller and that is about all it holds as the width of the handles of the knives prevent placing a knife per slot. Doesn't really adjust like the description says either , just many thin slots available.

Great counter declutterer
I bought this because I wanted to get rid of the ugly knife block taking up space on my countertop...love the knife dock! I have it in a narrow drawer, fits great. Holds several knives with room to spare, especially if you stagger big and little handles.

This knife dock is very useful. I'd much rather have my knives in a drawer that sitting out in a butcher's block. It says it fits up to 11 knives but fits my 6 steak knives and 4 large knives perfectly. Not too big and not too small as it fits all I need it to perfectly. My knives are put away safely and stay clean, love it.
