    I have a Takeda with a saya from Marko and a Moritaka on the way. That way I can travel with them.

    The Nakiri is a Takeda as was the second cleaver drawn from the block

    I have 2 -- a small Misono and a cheap Dexter-Russell. Either one will fit in the cleaver slot of my 22-slot Shun knife block. The Misono gets that spot, and the Dexter lives in a drawer with a Wusthof edge guard on it.
    Yes FB I made one that worked well however David Smith made me this one in Cherry wood to match my cutting boards (3) and 2 Magnetic knife holders.

    Joe I remember the pictures of the one you made. It looked really nice! I've got to imagine that Dave's is something to see then.
    Didn't you have yours sitting between two tables or something like that?

    I've got a couple cleavers and they each sit in a drawer with a cardboard sleeve around each. My wife also doesn't like blades sitting out on or near the cutting board, and our current kitchen has no room for my two mag bloks.

    Thanks for all the feedback. I should probably contact Boardsmith for a custom block.

    Do you have a picture of your block? Just want to consult a few 'designs'.

    Keep in mind David has removed the custom knife blocks from his web site. When he does the knife blocks he has to really change up his shop workflow and halt production on the boards. He was also having issues with people ordering blocks without providing proper measurements and then complaining that knives didn't fit. I'm not saying he wont make you one, but when I said "beg" I was serious. If he agrees to do it make sure you have patience to wait for it. His work is well worth it in my opinion.

    It worked well and was easy to make. I simply bought a 1"x8" board and some 1"x1/4" strips at Lowes and had them cut it for me. I then sanded all the pieces, glued it together then finished sanded it followed buy a good water based stain. I figure I had about $20 in the whole thing and a single week end. I used it for a good year and it worked perfectly. I gave it to one of my kids to use now.

    I have my cleaver (and Gyuto, Nakiri and Deba) on a MagBlok from Brenchcrafted. Great looking, solid holding.
