    FWIW that is a bottle of olive oil and what appears to be a cooking spirit.

    Back when I was thinking out getting a knife block, and before I found this place, I almost pulled the trigger on a custom from The Vermont Butcher Block Company. They'll make one to your specks, and use any wood you want.

    I would venture to think that German and Japanese knifes stop out at about the same weight, just happens that *** knives are thinner so they would end up longer.

    Just a guess .

    What is the core thought process ?

    If your slots are vertical, I don't see why you would have to put knives in with the edge down.

    I'm curious....why are people opposed to the magnetic strips or slots??? Is it just a preference or is it something more?

    We're not. Oivind asked for something he can put on his counter, basically. I don't think he ruled out a block like the Rader posted earlier other than he didn't like the bottles on that particular one.

    I don't know, maybe I am wrong, but I always thought Norway was a place with very competant and skilled wood workers. Is there not a local craftsman who would be game for a project.

    I would be curious to see what they might come up with apart from the norm.

    tk-i think homegirl was talking about me.

    i dont care for magnets just because they are designed to pull metal. it might not make the biggest difference in the world but i dont want a magnet pulling the metal on my edge that i work hard on and take pride in. i also think they can be dangerous in both pulling them off the magnet block (which if metal will scratch your knife). any way you try to remove them can be awkward or dangerous to you or the knife itself (and other knives on the rack). additionally, not having a knife covered seems like a bad idea to me because any bit of humidity or liquid splashing around an area (the kitchen) known for having lots of liquid can be bad news bears.

    Actually, there is one reason I don't like magnetic storage, come to think of it. They magnetize your blades. If you ever have more than one blade in the same area, you might get some unexpected movement.
