What owners are saying...

Does the job - could do with strong magnets like its big brother knife block

“Compact, does the job. Has a square slot for the signature general scissors. I wish it could accommodate the poulty scissors as they would have been more useful for my particular food preparation needs to have at hand. Instead I have a waiter's friend type corkscrew resting in that slot.

Are there magnets to hold the knives in place like the larger version? Its just that I feel a slight upward pull on the knives if I move them along the vertical plane of the block off the surface while they are in their slots. If there are magnets on the knife block, they are not strong enough to hold a 20cm cooks knife and a 14cm santoku knife off the inner surface of the slot.”
