Rated 5 out of 5 by from Can hold more knifes You are not restricted to any set pattern of slots in how you arrange your knifes or the size or type of the knife. I have several odd knifes that do not belong to any knife set and have two cleavers that I have be able to fit in. This block has allowed me to clear out the drawer in my kitchen of all my odd knifes. I had given one to a niece and when I saw how well it worked for her, I purchased one for myself during a sale recently. It would be nice if it there were a little more space for future knifes.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Can't hold big knives after a while I have been using this product for the last 3 years and now I can't put my big knives in it. It is good to arrange your smaller knives but when it comes to bigger knives you have to struggle a lot as the Polypropylene rods tend to break over usage and stuck inside the block. Not worth for the money we are spending on it.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Just don't drop this! This has been a useful knife holder overall and we can fit several knives at once into this holder. However, it fell once off our counter and the seems split on one of the joints, as they are not attached very securely...probably with cheap glue only and not any type of screws and certainly not dove tailed joints. So, we had to take some strong tape to hold it together, which takes away from the beauty of the product. As an alternative, anyone can take any tall container and fill it with cheap white rice, achieving the same affect. Of course, the rice is replaceable and perhaps you can fill your container with other suitable material to hold your knives, such as other grains, popcorn kernals or the like and save a bit of money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cool knife block holder! My daughters gave me this for Christmas, and I love it! Knives are right there, handy, and neat. I just bought this one for my sister, who envied mine. You'll be glad you did.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works very well. I purchased this knife block after moving in to a new apartment with some counter space! It does just what it should. Stores all my knives, only the longest have a bit of blade still exposed. I haven't had it long enough (just a month or two) to be able to comment on the recommended dishwasher cleaning of the black flexible insert. All in all, though, I'm very, very pleased with the purchase. No problems to report.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from If you are serious about your knives Some of us do not have an actual set of knives. We have collected the ones we love over the years and want to take really good care of them. Putting them in a drawer can be inconvenient and dangerous. This knife block suits all my storage needs without being unsightly on the counter top. Being able to put a knife of almost any size in almost any spot is genius! I am very glad we bought it, the price is reasonable and it was worth the wait (they were back ordered and it took almost a month to receive it).

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great idea but... Truly is a great idea. However, the box says "for any knife" not the case as serrated knives bend the plastic rods to a point where it's hard to get any knives in it. Kaboosh website says to cut the bent rods. Maybe it should instruct not to use serrated knives in it period. If you don't put serrated knives in it, you'll love it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Product I bought this for my travel trailer. It. Works great for the misc knives and scissors I may have out. With limited space this is a great way to keep the things I need close at hand.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What a terrific idea! I bought this because I have so many individual knifes that won't fit a standard knife block. It worked great and now my knives are visible and not stuck in a drawer. I love it. The container store always has the greatest stuff.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good purchase I like the idea of not having to fit the knives in holes. This makes it easier to just wash your knives and slide them right in. I was a little confused upon removing the Styrofoam.There was Styrofoam fitted in the bottom, when I removed it it looked like a hole there instead of it being finished with a piece of wood or something. I didn't know if I should remove it or not. Since you couldn't see it, I left it there. Still, for the price, I don't think I should have to wonder.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love this! Best way to store my odd shaped knives. They never fit In regular holders. Holds more knives too. Looks good on the counter. Would definitely recommend this one.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from A bit unsteady The first time I took a knife out, the block started to fall forward. Having kids around and two cats, I felt it was a safety hazard and returned it. I love the concept of it and the look but feel it needs a bit of a redesign.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally! I love to cook, and over the years I have splurged on several handmade specialty knives for my kitchen. Storing them has always been a problem because their shapes and/or sizes haven't worked in traditional slotted knife blocks. This wonderful knife block has saved both my investment and my sanity.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from genius This is a great way to store all knives. No slots so it takes any size and looks tidy. I am thrilled

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Flexible knife block This knife block is a good solution for storing a random collection of kitchen knives assembled over the years. I also use it to keep my sharpening steel and kitchen scissors. So far it seems to be working well enough though it can get a little over-crowded. Also, I'm not sure how well it would store longer knives. My longest kitchen knife is an 8" chef's knife and that is about as long a knife as I would want to store in this block.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Better Block! This is the most useful knife block I have ever used. There are no slots in the wood, just fibers that conform to the size of the knives you use. You can put them in any direction you need and they stay in place. You don't want to overload it but you will be able to store more knives than a wooden block will hold. It is really cool!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just Want I Needed!!! This product does exactly what it's advertised to do! I love it! I had acquired a motley collection of various sized knives from a number of sources over time, each of which is specialized and I use them regularly...but didn't want them taking up valuable drawer space when we moved from a big suburban house into a MUCH smaller urban apartment. They all fit beautifully (even the foot-long, round-ended meat slicer AND the large meat cleaver!) in the Kapoosh and sit handily on my prep island where I can get to them in a jiffy when I need them.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good for odd-sized knives I bought this block because I had some knives that did not fit a standard knife block. It is a great concept, where you can arrange knives how you want, and you can actually clean this kind of block. However, be careful not to overload it. If you do you can damage the little plastic tines.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Purchase I really love this product. I recently got a knife set for my birthday but had no where to store them, this was a great fit. It has two different slots for different size knives and you can arrange them in any order. Easy cleaning and storage. The only thing is that sometimes it separates oddly and the knives will store a little crooked but that's just my OCD kicking in! Love it.

Community Q&A

How do you properly clean this knife block? Has the interior held up well to continued dishwasher use?

Asked by: ClutterNemesis
The rods and the rod base inside can be clean on the top rack of the dishwasher but the rods are so light that the force of the water will cause the rods to scatter inside the machine. You need to anchor them down with other dishes. The wood finish of the block is very thin and would probably not stand up to be cleaned in a dishwasher. If you look at the interior and exterior, you can see the gain of the wood does not have a real smooth finish and exposure to excess amount of water and heat would wash away whatever finish there is and will cause the wood to dry out and causing it to split. I just damp wipe with minium amount of water (no soap) and periodically apply food grade oil to wood, the type used for cutting boards, to keep the wood from drying out. Since the knifes come in direct contact with food, you also don't want to use wood furniture cleaning products on the block. As the manufacturer did not state that the block is dishwasher or water emergable safety, put it into a dishwasher is a big "NO NO". It should treated the same way you would treat a good wood cutting board. A good natural solution to wipe down the block is 1 to 4 parts solution of white vinegar and water.

How many knives can it hold

Just wondering how many standard sized kitchen knives (ie no meat cleavers!) can this hold
Asked by: vleighw
It depends on the size and type of knifes you own. ThroughI careful arranging I have been to hold a seven piece set, eight odd knifes, a set of six steak knifes and two cleavers. You also need to consider the thickness of your handles.
