The magnets are STRONG.

It looks great on the counter and doesn't take up a lot of room.

This holder works well, and the knives are very accessible.

I purchased this as a Warehouse Deal. I initially wasn't sure I'd keep it but I like a lot now. I was looking for a knife block that took up less space than my old block and that was a cleaner place to keep my knives. With the magnetic block, I like that the knife blades are all visible, so I can see what knife I'm reaching for, and that the holder doesn't collect dust like the slots in traditional knife blocks.

I ordered the Olive and the one I received is much darker than the picture. Mine almost perfectly matches the Pakkawood handles on my LamsonSharp Silver series knives. It doesn't look as dark as the Makassar option (which looks like a dark walnut on my screen), but it is much darker than what is pictured for Olive. The wood is finished nicely, smooth with no rough edges. (Mine had a very small dent in the bottom front part of the base, but I was buying a used item, Warehouse Deal, and the dent was no big deal.) Since the color works for me, it was okay that it didn't match the picture.

Initially, I wasn't sure about the design. When taking a knife off, if you just pull the knife away, the holder tips over because the magnets are so strong. But removing the knife with a gentle twist (away from sharp side of blade) works. It took getting used to but now I don't have to think about it.

The knife holder will only hold one knife per panel. There is a magnetic rod in each panel right down the center. You can't see it but can feel where it is when placing a knife. The knifes are held straight and can't be off-center. So, you can't put two small knives on one panel. The panels are also not magnet on the backsides.

The shortest panel is 5 3/4 inches high.

After much waiting, I finally received this magnetic block in Makassar. It's beautiful. The wood is slightly ligher than the pic, but it's still an extremely nice color of wood.. it matches my kitchen perfectly, and it doesn't take up *that* much counter real estate (not any more than a normal block would).

The magnets that hold the knives are very strong and hold all of my knives with ease. I own a combination of normal knives as well as ones that are titanium coated. This knife block holds all of them solidly.

After much searching for a magnetic knife block, I finally found this one.. and I couldn't be happier.

Whether you're searching for a magnetic block sanitation benefits (knives aren't dropped into damp, bacteria-filled knife slots.. as is the case with traditional blocks).. or if you're just in it for the aesthetics of having nice knives out on display.. you can't go wrong with this block.

I was having trouble finding a knife holder that would hold my Shun knives, because they had a different shape than the typical knife. This holder works well, and the knives are very accessible.

Received this in the mail today. Very pleased with my purchase so far. Magnets are indeed strong, so the "twist and pull" method is working well.

Color Name: Makassar Verified Purchase
No holes in the knife block means no roaches, and no space for them to hide near and contaminate the blades.

The block has 7 spots (the vertical boards) for knives, but there are actually 2 magnets in each of the boards so if you use it for display you can pretty much put 13 knives on it. The magnets are strong, so the knives will NOT be falling off.

As another reviewer mentioned, the way to take the knives off of the magnets is to hold the knife by the handle and twist it off, not just pull it off.

The makassar wood is just a bit lighter than in the picture. I haven't used it for kitchen knives so I'm not sure if the wood wears down or scratches, but something tells me this knife block will look great even after some use. Boker makes some wonderful products; very happy with their subcom, ceramic anti-grav and boker kal-09 folders also.

I use one for displaying folding knives (the knives are stored properly on the top magnets, and I folded 6 folding knives and affixed their spines to the bottom magnets; looks sweet) and am going to buy another for kitchen knives. Superb!

Color Name: Olive Verified Purchase
I have a regular knife block in our RV and noticed how dirty the slots get. I use compressed air spray to clean them but I wanted something different for the house and really did a lot of research. I didn't want to spoil the look of the kitchen tile by drilling holes and hanging a magnetic bar so I decided to give this a try. I am very pleased with it. It looks great on the counter and doesn't take up a lot of room. I attach my most used knives and keep the others in a drawer knife holder. Even my long bread slicer and chef's knife fit on it. You do need to get used to pulling the knives off by twisting slightly in a motion away from the cutting edge, but that's second nature to me now. I haven't had any problems with it tipping over. I'd buy one for the coach but I don't think it's heavy enough to stay in place on the counter while we're driving. The block is much heavier and doesn't move around. I'll just have to keep using the compressed air for that one.
