I like the idea of an under the counter block and made one a long time ago. If it was angled slightly downward the knives would not need a magnet to stay in. But the rotation mechanism looks bulky and not very attractive.
I have more under the counter space than drawer space so an in drawer option would be out of the question in my small kitchen.
If you ever make them again IŽd love to have one of your nice knife blocks too!
Just a couple ideas I have been kicking around. Do a stock block in a one size fits all that accomodates around 30-40 knives in a group buy format in one type of wood. Maybe once a year if business ever slows down for you? I know I'd be up for a block if you ever started producing again.
Chock a block! Nice.
