Seems like a high risk block. The idea of the block is to protect the knives and protect the user. This does neither. Not a fan. The design of the warrior is neat. But I don’t like the concept of storing these knives open.

Well, it may not be kid-friendly, but it is the most unique knife block I’ve seen!

I love the Spartan, and how he’s holding off the enemy with the shield, and wielding the steel! Michigan State fans are gonna love this thing!

This looks amazing! Love the concept and execution.

There are many many knife storage devices with the blades open, including the kitchen drawer, which I think is far more dangerous! Also a magnetic strip. Maybe this should be called a knife stand!!

Love it!

Very cool block. I love the contrasting wood that the original company does on theirs, but that maple is very cool on yours.
