    +1

    Some paring knife slots and a scissors slot in the base works for me. Forty slots up top would be far too many for me (at least, for now!).

    I think I could cut back to 40.

    Why don't we go with a more modest 25 slots, so that I could buy one and the rest of you could just buy two.

    Oh, and I would like a slot for a cleaver. As long as we are putting the prototype wishlist together.

    I like the idea of a modular system. The block could be built up in layers within a universal frame, with each layer of a standard spec encompassing the primary knife sizes. The idea would be to grow the block as your knife inventory grew. The sides could have a big dovetail (or something) in them so that you could add modules to accomodate paring or other small blades and common utensils.

    The one in my picture has 2 slots for cleavers, although they needed to be a little taller.

    Sorry David (if you're reading this) that those of us without one of your blocks aren't ready to accept that you are done making them.

    Although I don't own it, this is one of my favorite blocks. No idea who made it.
