Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stylish and Useful I really love that I am able to put knives where I need to in this holder. There no predetermined slots, so you can slide them in the holder as you wish. It also really looks great!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from excellent Holds a lot of knives in a slim design. What's not to like!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Purchase Very sleek looking. Takes up much less space than a butcher block knife holder and is much more appealing to the eye. Love it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love, love, love this block! I love this knife block! It's functionality is beyond compare. It easily accommodates Most knives and shears. The ease with which knives slip in is refreshing and efficient. I bought the black model and it looks great on my counter top.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Must have Best item for the kitchen since the fridge. No more cut fingers while looking for a knife, no more wood blocks, where some knives won't fit, and it takes up very little room. I love mine, my daughter loves hers.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Kitchen Addition I am a big fan of Bodum products and this one is great. I did not rate it 5 stars simply because I'd rather have my knives presented to me at an angle, instead of straight down. I got this to accommodate a pair of Shun knives (chef's and santoku) that I finally decided to splurge on, as well as a bread knife and a couple of paring knives. They all fit beautifully in the space provided and the weight of the block makes it steady, while the slim profile does not take up much counter space. I love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Remarkable This system is amazing. You can fit any size knife and as many as it can hold. There is no restrictions.
Date published: 2014-01-29
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great buy! Absolutely love it! Sleek and streamlined design takes up very little counter top space and multiple knives (more than four shown) drop into the "plunge" material like slipping into water. Have one in both my NY and FL home.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding product I needed something to replace a magnetic bar for my knives. I didn't know such a product existed until I researched alternatives to a wall bar and found the cheapest price here. I love it and it looks great in our kitchen against the new backsplash. Holds many knives. It's quite the conversation piece too!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this knife block This is great to use and have on the countertop. I had a knife holder that fit in the drawer and it didn't hold bigger knives well. So I was looking for something that didn't take up alot of counter space. This fits perfectly and holds several knives from big to small. So glad I bought this

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent choice for a small kitchen This gives me easy access to all my knives and keeps anyone opening drawers--where they used to be kept--from being accidentally injured by one. Sleek, obtrusive addition to a tiny kitchen!
Date published: 2013-12-24
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Product is Awesome! The Knife block is super slim and can fit many knives. Currently using it for the knives that do not fit in our traditional wood block knife holder. Fits perfectly on the counter and cleans up clutter in drawers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Functional and Stylish Space Saver I had a couple of very chunky, bulky and unattractive knife blocks taking up an inordinate amount of space on my kitchen counter. I bought one of these, and it holds all of my knives! It's a little expensive, but well worth it. It looks great, and takes up around 1/5 the space of my previous blocks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Invention! Just moved my daughter into her new studio in DC. We realized right away that she hardly had any drawer space for her utensils. I searched the web and found this knife block and bought it. We were thrilled with it! It uses little counter space and it looks very chic... almost decorative. I loved it so much that I purchased two more for my Jacksonville condo and my NYC condo! I will recommend this to all my friends.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from perfect knife storage solution If you have limited space on your countertops but still need somewhere to store your knives, this is for you. It's sleek and does the trick without taking up too much space. It's a little expensive for a knife block, but I think that goes for all things bodum. (I bought the black version)
Date published: 2013-04-02
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great innovation! This knife holder is just as advertised, sleek and "sharp" looking, while being highly functional. The design is very clever and I love that it takes up next to no counter space.
Date published: 2013-04-01
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Highly-recommended! This is a great way to save space on your counter and have knives easily within reach. While compact, this unit allows you to store more knives than the traditional wooden block style in less space. Highly-recommended!
