  • Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect!! I have had two of these for over four years and they are excellent. I store my large and small Wusthof knives on them and have never had a problem worrying about where the magnets are..They adhere in a sequence, on both sides, that seem easy to visualize..Buying another one for my dear daughter, who envies them!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does the Job with Modern Style Not exactly sure what the negative reviewers were expecting. Of course the entire massive block wouldn't be one giant magnet! What were you thinking? The magnets are evenly spread out and very strongly hold all my knives. You have to familiarize yourself for a few seconds to know where they are, but, once you do, they work just fine.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Magnets cannot hold a knife This knife block seemed like a great idea, but it failed completely. The magnets inside the wood are not strong enough to hold good knives. I have tried all sizes of knives and aligned them with the positions of the magnets, but the knives just slide down every time. The only position the works is the vertical position because the bolster is resting on horizontal part of the block. So you could maybe put 2 knives on the block. That's not useful. The only other thing that might hold is a knife with a really thin and long blade and a very light plastic handle. I don't have any knives like that.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Knife Block! I do not understand the other reviews, I have had this for about a year and I love it! It holds all sizes of knives and holds them well. I have a wall magnet and this block, I will never go back to the traditional knife block.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from I like it! But . . . I like the fact that the knives aren't sliding into a slot that you can't see into - that always kind of grossed me out. So, I love that this is open, easy to clean, etc. The only downside is that sometimes you have to get the knives on there just right or they slip off.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Big Knives Only This product uses several small magnets embedded in the block. They are spaced far enough apart to make it work well only with knives with larger blades, and with a handles with a distinct starting point. When I used this with Global Classic knives with tapered transition, all metal construction with smaller blades (5"), getting them to stick where you want them is not always possible. Not a deal killer, but I will be buying something else for myself and passing this on.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from weak magnets - knives fall off I was excited to find an alternative to a knife block as our new place doesn't have a good spot for the long knife magnet we used to have on the wall. I tried this thing even though it was pricey but the magnets aren't powerful enough and the knives slide around or fall off. Looks nice but doesn't work well....
