Extremely happy with this purchase. I am a little obsessive about my knives and purchased this block to see how it would jive with the current sizes/types that I have. It is sitting beside my old block and the trend is to put the less frequently used knives in the old block. The new block really makes the old one look shabby. I just reordered another one of these blocks to get everything on the same page.
i had too many knives in a drawer taking up space. And It was too cluttered. I found this storage block and it turned out great. The block is kind of big and bulky and that is why I rated a 4 stars. But other than that, I like it. I don't have too much counter space but I'll keep it.
