Someone with the same initials as mine once put a knife into a block noticing a lower slot was wide enough. But the lower slot means it's shorter. Tip got bent slamming into the counter. What a maroon.What is is about a block that would be considered a con for knives? Too much ferrule/bolster damage, or blade itself? Just curious, and definately no drawers here for the same reason.
You can drop knives into a slot too short for it and the tip will hit my granite counter. Also, they trap dirt and moisture, and can't be cleaned. God forbid your blender full of a smoothie explodes/falls over on your counter and lands right on your knifeblock. Not like that's going to happen with kids around, oh wait. :razz:What is is about a block that would be considered a con for knives? Too much ferrule/bolster damage, or blade itself?

Wow,Nah, I want my wall to look like a tribute to 'Eat Drink Man Woman' some day.
Yup. The top two, maybe three knives will have to sit more to the left.Only thing that I would be careful of is where the peg supporting the knife near the heel is positioned. If it is forward of the balance point of the knife, the handle would drop, and the knife fall off.
Wrong depiction. Knives need to be on their spines, not edges.Argh
Flickr didnt work, nor could I upload here, does this work?
