Product Description

Product Description

The Swinger block fits underneath the kitchen cupboard. It stores 8 knives and a sharpening steel. The block is on a swivel that easily mounts under your cabinet and swings out from under the cabnet so you can retreive your knives. A magnet inside of the block holds the knives securely.

Amazon.com

When counter space is at a premium, this clever knife block stores cutlery underneath a kitchen cabinet. It mounts easily with a drill and three screws (included) that secure the block's "spacer" (a 1-1/4-inch-thick oak block) to the cabinet's bottom. Between the spacer, which ensures handles are comfortably lower than the cabinet, and the actual block are two steel plates connected to a pivoting device that permits the block to be rotated 360 degrees. Thus, when not needed, the block can be swiveled in any direction so knife handles don't protrude. When knives are needed, a push of a finger brings their handles from beneath the cabinet. Solidly made of oak, the block has eight slots for knives with blades up to 10 inches long and a ninth slot for a sharpening steel. Magnetic strips hold knives securely in their slots. The block measures 10-1/4 inches long, 7-1/4 inches wide, and, including the spacer, 3-1/2 inches high. --Fred Brack

We had two knife blocks on the counter, with lots of dull knives in them. We bought two good Global knives, and sent the rest packing to the drawer or the summer cottage. Now we have more counter space and sharp knives. The reason I gave this a 4 instead of a 5 is that it doesn't fit under our cabinets in their recommended installation. Our cabinets are 12 inches (30 cm) deep, and when I installed the block as recommended, it would bump against the wall when I tried to rotate it. So I had to move it forward about 1 inch (2-3 cm). If your cabinets are 13 inches (33 cm) or deeper, you should be okay. Also, the template was slightly off on one of the holes, so check the template against the pilot holes on the block, and modify the template before you mark the cabinet for drilling.

For those of you who have huge kitchens, stop reading now. For those like me, for whom counter space is at a premium, this is a great product. Fits nicely under the cabinet, although you need to think before you blindly follow the template. If your cabinets are 12" deep cut about 1" off the front of the template orthe block will bind against the wall as it turns. Slots fit my knives and steel perfectly. Really glad I got this product.

I thought that this was the only option for under cabinet storage of knives. FYI there is another under-cabinet knife storage alternative out there. I used an internet search engine with the criteria: +"under counter" +knife, and found nice storage tray in the form of a drop down unit. Found one where I could choose one of 5 unstained woods for the face piece, which could then be stained to match the color of my cabinets (birch, hickory, maple, oak, or cherry) I also found another company that has a clear acrylic tray version. The hardware is basically the same for these. One company offers theirs with a slotted wooden block that attaches to the tray by magnetic adhesion allowing it to be removed and cleaned. It opens easily with the aid of two pull-down hinges and adjustable latches provide secured closure.

I bought one of these years ago and it has served me very well. However the current product is not the same. First of all the product is not made with any quality. The wood is green and the glue joints separate so badly that my son, who is a woodworker, said there was no way he could fix the last one I bought. Then we get to the knife slots. There is not one slot wide enough for a normal size chef's knife, basic to any knife set. The sharpening steel slot, which on my old block is on the bottom row, is on the top row of slots and, as every steel has a hanger ring, that falls in front of the knife slot below it. For a company as well know as Wusthof it is a disgrace. I sent a letter with photos to Wusthof USA to which I received no reply. Shame on Wusthof!

We love this knife storage-- it is out of the way, handy and keeps our knives in a safe place. Best of all, it doesn't take up any counter or drawer space, it just fits underneath the cabinet. Highly recommended.

This knife block has a very nice finish, however it doesn't fit under any standard cabinet. The block that mounts to the underside of your cabinet is about 1" too thin to allow the block to swing out as it is designed. Also, the template does not match the mounting holes in the swivel block, and the screws are not the right length. I am returning mine for a refund.
Also of note - the block holds the knife in place by magnets that can scratch/mark the blades of your fine cutlery when you pull the knife out or slide it in.
Altogether, this is a non-starter. Yes, I could modify it and make it work but when you pay this kind of a price for a block of wood with slots in it you shouldn't have to re-manufacture it to make it work.

Like the design--but make sure to inspect the block for cracks.

There was one small crack in this block when I received it. I didn't notice it at the time. After a week, four additional large cracks had opened at the right side of the block where the different pieces of wood are joined.

Like others, we found the holes in the template did not align with the holes in the mounting block. The holes don't even align very well with themselves if you measure their layout. (See comment about using the template). Also, after redoing the template to match the holes, it was obvious if we lined up the arrows with the front of the cabinet, the back of the knife holder would hit the wall when swung around. An easy fix was to fold over the edge of the template so the back of the arrow heads were in alignment with edge of the cabinet. You also need to remember when using the template that you realigned that if you drill upwards from underneath the cabinet that your template is a mirror image of the holes in the mounting block so use the template with the print side against the bottom of the shelf.

The screws supplied are kind of cheesy and the type that can break if too much torque is applied. We replaced ours with stainless screws (#8x1.25) and used a little dish soap to lubricate the threads.

After all that the install was a piece of cake, looks great and frees up the counter space.

A little more attention to detail and it would be a 5 star for us.
