That is actually a knife block in the first photo. The knife block in the last photos was made by the the BoardSMITH but he is no longer making them.
If you are talking about the yellow handled one it's a Wantanabe stainless damascus. Lot of favorites depends on the chore. The carter is paper thin love it on onions, peppers, ginger,etc. I also love the takeda. It's fun just to grab a different knife. Before I got the big block I used to rotate knives into the smaller one.Nice collection. What's the second gyuto in? Care to share your favourites?
The Keagle block (actually I have two matching) was made a bunch of years ago. Don't know if he is making them or not. Website is still active. If we could all come to a consensus (yeah sure) on a block design maybe we could convince David into making a bunch of the exact same thing. Mine is already out of slots I'd like some paring knife slots and a scissors slot in the base and probably need about 40 slots up top.How do you like the keagle cutlery block? With Dave not making blocks any more would you recommend them?
