Protect knives, organizes drawers

Great product Organizes and protects my knives

Are the slots that the blade rest in clear through or is there something for the blades to sit on so they do not hit the drawer beneath?

There are some wooden cross pieces that the knives hit before the drawer. Keeps air circulating as well as protecting the knives and drawers.

Can someone who owns this please confirm the actual width? This Amazon page variously states 5.5" (prod desc), 5.25" (comp chart), and 5.2" (prod det)

It is EXACTLY 5 6/16" inches in width. (I love it; it's well made and a great in-drawer knife block.)

Perfect fit for drawer

Looks great, works great. Will probably order again--we have a lot of knives.

Can you store the knives with their protective covers on? I recently purchased new Zyliss knives with covers to protect the blade, and me!

We have no blade sheaths that would fit in the holders slots. Seems as though others claim theirs do though. All we know is it's a very nice fixture for your knives in a drawer.

How many 8" chef's knives can it hold? I have quite a few 8" chef's knives, total 12" long. Seems one slot can hold just 1, so total 5. Sounds right?

Yes, 5 slots, 5 of the longer knives, with a layer of shorter knives in the slots above the longer ones. Steak knives length fit nicely there. If a blade is narrow, I've been able to place 3 knives to the long slot. Since I have a lot of knives, I bought two of these and have them side-by-side in the drawer.

Your knives are the most important tools in your kitchen. To keep them sharp and well organized, a knife block is a classic choice that can be as decorative as it is functional. Are you looking for an environmentally friendly bamboo block or a sleek stainless steel design? Does your kitchen call for an upright design with a small footprint, or can you opt for a larger design that conveniently angles the knife handles? Finding the right knife block that perfectly matches your set of knives can be challenging, but some designs are universal and can accommodate almost all blade sizes and shapes. Others are magnetic and work similarly to magnetic knife strips. To find the perfect knife block that will last you for years, check out our shopping guide, which includes all the factors that go into selecting the perfect knife block and some first-rate options to consider.
