Chalk this up to pure genius. It’s a knife block, but one that’ll make you go “Huh, would you look at that!”.
It’s made by Martin Robitsch and received Honorable Mention in the Designboom IMM Cuisinale “Kitchen is the heart of the home” exhibition. It’s a simple larch wood box filled with bamboo skewers. You can insert any knife (or any longish implement for that matter), without having to aim for the little slit. Just stick it in anywhere and off you go.
It measures 12″H x 8.5″W x 5.75D and will set you back a cool $110. Of course, that’s if you want Martin’s own. Now that you’ve seen this, what’s to stop you from making your own homebrew version? Get a box, a bunch of skewers from the grocery store, and you’ve got the best (ghetto) knife block in town.
