The storage of kitchen knives is always up to date. Some people buy them one at a time and when not in use the knives in a drawer ring and get dull and nicked. Other people store a huge set of nine or ten kitchen knives, six steak knives, a pair of scissors, and a sharpening steel in a huge, angled knife block on the countertop. If you need a cool block to store all of the knives you are currently using, here are some cool tutorials that you might find using.
This cool knife block design takes up less countertop space and shows off the natural beauty of dark walnut wood. The piece is really simple: four vertical boards separated by ten strategically placed partitions. The partitions are shorter than the vertical so that evaporation can be facilitated if a knife is inserted wet after washing. It would be easy to do three or four of these in one afternoon and reserve an additional afternoon for completion.
