Bamboo Knife Dock


Product Information

While other knife storage blocks limit you to a certain number of knives using pre-sized slots, our Bamboo Knife Dock can hold nearly any size knife. The secret is in the flexible cork-like dividers that adjust to accommodate the blades of your knives. It's sized to fit in standard kitchen drawers.

  • Bamboo is easily renewable, so it's an environmentally friendly material
  • Dividers are made from cork-like material



Eco Friendly


  • 6" x 15" x 2-1/2" h

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Takes up too much space Takes up too much space and holds too few knives since they can only be as close as the width of their handle.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it!!!! It is one of the best things I have in my Kitchen. Every time I open the drawer to pick up a knife, I feel safe that there is no danger at all. They are kept safe and organized at the same time! With this organizer there is even space to put something else thext to the container. I love it, love it! Totally recommend this product! I must have in your kitchen, spacially if yu have knives of different sizes and functions.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Perfectly I'm going back to buy a second one as all of the knives don't fit safely in the one unit. I think the knives need to be spaced out a little more to ensure a good grip to remove safely. Also, I think placing the smaller knives together and separating them from the larger ones is safer. I'm very pleased with the one and two will look and work better. Having the knives loose in the drawer is tough on the edges of the blades and not safe. Very big knives with long handles have to be handled delicately.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy and simple knife storage I've had my eye on this for a while and finally got around to buying one. It works great for storing our knifes, and it is nice not to have to worry about which knives fit in which slot. Aesthetically, the bamboo is a nice complement to the cork.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Way to clear off your counters I've had a butcher block on my counter for many years and I've decided to minimize everything in my home down to what I absolutely use and need. One of the changes was to get rid of the knives I really don't use and store them somewhere accessible but out of sight. This knife dock/block allows you to use it for as many or as few items as you want rather than dictate the max number like blocks typically do. The upright knife "holders" are too hard to get knives in/out because the of cabinet above the counter so this much better.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Ehhh, get something else I didn't find this product to be as useful as I wanted. It's not easy to get your knives between the cork sheet dividers. The cork sheet dividers would leave cork residue on my knives whenever I wanted to use them. I would have to rinse and clean them again. It looks like a good idea in the beginning but it's not.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It does the job! This knife dock fits beautifully inside of a smaller drawer. It is easy to insert the knives into the cork dividers. Looks and feels like a high quality item.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from love it Very easy to use - no futzing to make sure you align knife with properly sized cut out in block. We can almost put our knives away without actually looking. We put ours in a large pullout drawer under our cooktop next to bamboo utensil divider. No problems with knives popping up or sliding around, and readily accommodates a range of sized blades.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from not long enough I really wanted to like this for our knives, but it didn't work out. There is a dowel rod that holds all the cork at the end. For an 8" knife, the blade hits the dowel rod instead of cork. It also is not angled and the heavy knife handle makes the knife tip pop up and come out of the cork at the end. Just didn't work for our big knives and it had to go back.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best in-drawer knife tray EVER!!! Being a fan of clutter-free kitchens, I had looked forever for an in-the-drawer solution for my knives. Most products have a set number of slots to hold a limited number of knives. I found this tray and can now contain ALL of my knives in a very small amount of space!!! Thanks to the great design using multiple layers of cork, there are no pre-determined slots for each knife, making it easy for even my husband and two sons to put the knives away ;) I cannot recommend this product enough - in fact, since purchasing mine I have inspired other friends and family to do the same! No more knife block on the counter = more food prep space and a more serene kitchen!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Safe, convenient knife storage It's safe and sturdy, and holds most knives. Our bread knife sticks out a little bit, but we can still close the drawer. And this fits right next to our flatware organizer. It a good size and keeps the blades covered.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from NO MORE MISSING FINGERS! While that didn't actually happen, I always used to feel like I was risking my fingers when having to get a knife from the jumble of knives in my knife drawer. Now it's organized, safe for fingers, the knives don't shift around, and it protects the edges of the blades. I fit even my longest blades in this! I LOVE THIS!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sheer Genius Absolutely the perfect drawer insert for all my knives! I'm constantly shielding the blades and now I'm finally able to grab and go with no worries. This is perfect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this Bamboo Knife Dock! We keep this guy right on the counter in our kitchen's prep area.... no way i would hide it in a drawer! Easy access, keeps our knives protected from each other, and also allows the to breath just in case there is any extra moisture left on them after washing. This is going to be my go-to gift to friends this year!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Knife Dock? How about lifesaver. I used to have a magnetic knife strip, which, due to our plaster walls was no longer super practical. Plus I felt like I couldn't remove the knives from the strip without risking dinging or bending them over time; even if I removed them properly, I couldn't count on others to do the same! This knife dock fits snugly in one of my kitchen drawers (right under my cutting block!) and keeps everything neatly out of sight, but I don't worry about damaging my nice kitchen knives with its use, either. It turned out to be the perfect solution, and I think it looks good too!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from works really well I was intrigued and so glad I tested it out. Much better than magnets and silly wooden boxes you need to match knives to slots.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best knife rack ever I rarely see anything with five stars, and this is well deserved. When we arrived at our summer home in May the utensil drawer was a mess. I got online to The Container Store and ordered an organizer for the drawer and this knife rack. I was surprised when I opened it that it had little cork dividers. Odd. Well, it is the best. We both love it. I actually enjoy putting knives away! I just ordered another for our winter home. pabrocb

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great idea for organizing We have many knives in addition to our original knife set. We already use the wood knife holder that sits in the drawer. This was for the additional knives. While I really like the idea of being able to place knives in quickly, it was a little too short for our 10" chef knife and didn't hold enough. we still had more knives to fit in the drawer with two knife holders. I returned it. However, if you need organization and have limited knives I would recommend this dock. Well made.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for Large and Sharper Knives Although I have a knife block on my counter, I have purchased some additional (super sharp) knives and didn't have a place to store them. The knives were expensive and I wanted to keep them sharp. A couple of times I cut myself on the knives when I reached into the drawer and knew I needed to find a solution. I went to the Container Store and spotted this item. I wasn't sure it would work because I was afraid the "sheets" of cork would get cut as I inserted the blades. That doesn't happen! I've had this item for several months and just LOVE it. I find it holds about 8 large chef-sized knives and anything smaller. Couldn't be happier with my purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Clean, organized, and elegant Great to use--the segments let you decide how you want to space your knives. It looks like a solid section of cork-like material when no knives are in, even after you have been using it for a while. Definitely would purchase this if I needed more space. Currently holding my kitchen knives and steak knives comfortably.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Space Saver! My wife and I have limited counter space in our kitchen and got tired of the knife block taking up more space than it should. This dock fits neatly in our silverware drawer and allows for various knives to fit in it nicely. It has a nice look and really finishes off our silverware drawer. And its cool how the knives "slide" into the top of the bamboo sheaths. Really nice product.

Community Q&A

How many knives does this safely/easily hold?

Asked by: barbsie
Depending on the size of the handle, it can hold anywhere from 4-6 knives.

Can this be easily taken apart?

I have a skinny space in my drawer where I’d like to store one or two knives max. Is the cork portion easily removable so that I can manipulate it to fit my space?
Asked by: kdeew
No, the cork dividers cannot be removed and re-sized.

What are the proper care and cleaning instructions?

How do i clean this?
Asked by: Ash00
There are no special care instructions on the packaging for our Bamboo Knife Dock. We suggest an application of our Wood Oil periodically to maintain the natural glow of the bamboo material. (Our Cutting Board Oil Wipes work nicely.) The fine dust from the cork-like material that holds the knife blades should dissipate quickly and can simply be brushed off the knives before use.
