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 I´d 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.
