You have to put your fancy kitchen knife collection somewhere, but why settle for the traditional wooden block you see in almost any kitchen? When trying to design a beautiful home, every little detail matters, and the Black Diamond Knife Block from company Edge of Belgravia is as striking of a knife receptacle as we’ve ever seen. Designed by one Christian Bird, the block fits up to 11 knives, but will look complete with as little as two. Almost any type of knife will be supported, as long as the blade is thinner than 4mm. “Clever use of weighting secures the knives in their blocks, just as slight angling allows for easy extraction.” And for something that looks this expensive, we’re happy to report that it’ll only set you back £89.90 (about $140). Oh, sure, it’s a lot of money for a knife block, we agree. But these designer items usually tend to fetch a few orders of magnitude more than they should.
