These are some pictures of a few knife blocks I made for a custom order. I was to make a knife block that could hold a knife with a heavy handle. The guy they were for, removes the handle of the knives and replaces them with precious stone. The work that he does is really beautiful. The first design I made for him was an enclosed block, it didn’t really work out. The handles were to heavy and lifted the block off the table. So I tried to stay simple with the block and I came up with this. At first I intended to have the knives just be staggered but when a friend saw the block he lifted the center knife and flipped it around. Ended up being a cool design due to how you could rearrange the knives. I am sending the blocks out tomorrow, hope they are a success. Let me know what you think about the design and if you have ever seen any knife block like this.
