Looks like picture, but does not work well. The block apparently has magnetic strips at exact spots rather than all the way across, so when you try to fit smaller knives on, the spacing that is required is ridiculous looking. Only 1 knife can fit per space, and in between there is no magnetic force at all. I was looking forward to having all my knives fit as it should be long enough to accommodate about 8-10 knives, but only 6 fit due to the required spacing. Very disappointed.

After taking a cooking class, I went home and had a long hard look at my knife block. You know the kind--big and heavy as a bowling ball and able to hold every knife you ever owned. Taking all the knives out and turning it on a side, I was able to see how incredibly filthy it had become over the years. The slots went all the way through, top to bottom, but dust, dirt and even a web were evident. Worse there was no way to clean it. The Berndes Mastery Series Magnetic Knife Block is the best of the offerings to solve the cleanliness issue for your knives in daily use with the food you eat. I highly recommend it, because once you commit to this style, it is simply the best looking. I would have given it five stars except for two things: (1) It is too small to hold a ten inch blade (a very common size for a chef's knife) and (2) Berndes failed to include on the box or in it, a set of directions on how too keep the wood clean, especially should there be an oily kitchen spill.

The block is to hold six knives. I found it to hold more. We keep both large and small knives on it. It is so handy to use. A knife is used, cleaned, and placed back on the board. No dirty slots to deal with.

I've always been attracted to the utility and aesthetics of magnetic strips, but living in an apartment, and moving every few years wall mounted pieces really aren't a possibility for me. After having my eyes opened to the bacteria and ickiness that can grow in standard knife blocks (yuck) I was determined to find another solution.

For my needs this block is great. The angle of the stand assures that it doesn't take up too much counter real estate. It also holds about 5-6 knives, depending on size. As some other reviewers have pointed out, the block is not made up of a single magnet across the unit, which means that there are some "dead" spots on the bock. This really wouldn't be a problem unless you were planning on using it for very small knives; for chef's knives, bread knives, etc., you wouldn't really want the knives to be mounted much closer to each other than the block allows for.

The block has a nice blonde finish, and even though it is obviously a laminate (since how else are they going to get the magnets inside? :) ), it's quite attractive in my kitchen. While I would likely go with a traditional wall-mounted strip if that was a possibility for me, this is an excellent stand-in, and highly recommended for others in my position.

Can recommend this product. It displays knives nicely plus it doesn't dull them up like normal knife holders. Good price to product ratio.

This magnetic block is just beautiful. I love the chic display and my cutco knives look GREAT. Like other reviewers, some of my knives are long and don't fit vertically on the board. BUT....if you tilt and angle them diagonally and place the longest knives in the middle of the board, it works. Now, I have all my knives displayed and they are even more beautiful angled diagonally. Love, love this product.

This was a Christmas gift to my son who is a chef. He loved it. He has had no problems with the knives not staying where placed. He loves it.
