Key design features:

* Solid Wood (No veneers)

* Hand Worked

* Premium Finish

* Double Width - 4" width ensures good purchase

* Rare Earth Magnets Used

* Double Magnets (per row) - 24" model has 11 rows x 2 magnets = 22 total / 16" model has 7 rows x 2 magnets = 14 total > Double magnet placement allows for small knives to be held securely from either top or bottom positions.

* Perfect magnetic strength for all kitchen knives.

* Rounded Edges - Safer for use on very thin edged knives like the usuba or yangiba. Presents a soft touch for going on and off the rack.

* Double Mounting Holes (4 total)

* Purpose designed and built in the USA by a kitchen knifenut specifically for use by other kitchen knifenuts.

* Each rack is a one of a kind.

Custom lengths and wood types can be ordered. Please PM or email requests.

Yesterday I did a side by side mount up test putting these new racks against my MagBlok. I was testing the off and on feel, holding power, and positioning/placement. I was surprised to see how much easier and smoother it was to put on and take off the knives on the new racks yet the holding power seemed just as strong.

Also something that stuck out greatly to me was the lack of edge push out on single bevels, even my usuba didn't edge flex. In contrast the Magblok's sharp corners were showing to push the usuba and yanagiba's edges out right at the edge lines of the blok, which is very unsettling. I've always loved my Magblok and have no intention on ditching it however if I was to buy again today I'd be looking at these new models, they really are a premium product.

I forgot to mention that these wood types aren't a stock thing. It's likely that the woods will change often and the crotch oak we now have on hand may never be used again.

We still have these racks available, I plan to bring them to the ECG to show them off as I believe they need to be seen to be appreciated. :)
