By S. Fraser on August 27, 2007
We first saw this knife block in a store in New Zealand. We loved it then, it had a nice heavy metal base but the packing of it was too much to bring home to the U.S. So, when we found the same style of knife block on amazon.com (loftparty) we where thrilled.
However, due to perhaps mass or over production of the "Ex" knife block, the base was now constructed out of plastic! The whole construction seemed loose, and the wearing and chipping of the silver metallic paint was inevitable. Disappointed, we promptly returned it. Now I have to live with shoppers regret.

The stand is made of a shiny plastic and the knives have a nice design. Unfortunately it looks like one of the knives is already beginning to rust a little.

It is more of an art piece than a functional kitchen item though, so I'm happy with it.

I got this for the wife and she just loves it! Not long after she started using it she taped a picture of my face on its head, giving us both a good laugh, what a wiseacre! She cooks a lot more now that I got it for her so it has benefits for me, as well. I often find her standing in the kitchen for hours just taking the knives out, honing or sharpening them, and putting them back in.

She's so happy I sometimes wake up in the middle of the night with her standing over me sweating with a wide-eyed grin on her face. All-in-all a fantastic product!

I had admired this for a long time prior to purchasing it. It may be because of all the build-up that the end result it such a let down.

To be fair, the knives are of good quality; not the best, but by no means are they a total waste of time.

The construction does leave much to be desired though. The base is rather cheap feeling, light-weight plastic, and the chrome paint/layer they put on should be a bit more durable considering this model costs $30 more than the others.

It IS nifty, and it IS attractive (for now.....) but I could not recommend this purchase to anyone else..... As a matter of fact, I'll probably give it to the first person who comes to visit and seems truely taken with it.

I saved this knife holder until my kitchen was remodeled. I have a stunning kitchen and this knife holder is what people focus on when they look at this room. It is fun, and the knives are very good quality.

Appears to be a stainless steel knife holder. Actually cheap plastic with sprayed on chrome. Very disappointing. Amazon was good about the return, but don't waste your time or money. Plastic from China, great concept poor execution, not worth $40 let alone $200

Very disappointed; the 'chrome' is just plastic, including the base; it was damaged--rubbed and scratched; piece was larger than expected...it looks great in the photo, but not in 'person'. Would love to see it a little smaller and in real stainless steel, even at a much higher price...very cool idea, but this incarnation is just crappy. I returned it; may have been tempted to keep it if it hadn't already shown signs of wear...

It is displayed as a "Chrome Holder" in the name, but really the holder is plastic. Not what I was expecting at all and cost wayyyyy too much for it to be plastic. Rediculous.
