I was and maybe still am concerned about that as well and that I asked that question of previous buyers on Amazon. All of the answers I received was that there had been no issues with it. I'll have to take a close look and keep an eye on it and see what happens.

I know a couple of you were looking for some feedback on the new style knife "block" so for what it's worth, I'll be sending it back. While it does look nice and does save a small amount of counter space, I'm finding it a bit awkward to use, it seems a little strange to pull the knife straight up instead of out at an angle and you really need to pay attention to get it back into the correct slot. So all in all a little to much awkwardness for to little gain for me at least.

That makes sense. I feel like I should have seen that.

Thanks for reporting back.

Thanks for the report flp. It's attractive in the picture, but if you're anything like me, it wouldn't take long for it show all the water spots related to food prep.

I recently bought this one for my son and he likes it a lot. Just a thought.

I had already purchased this one: Henckels International Bamboo Knife Block, 16-slot | cutleryandmore.com but tried that other one just to see if would save a little more room but that didn't work out so I"m going back to the henckels. I had bought the henckels because the one I'd been using for years didn't have a slot for the Sandoku. The only issue I have with the henckels is the placement of the slot for the shears but I'll get used to that.
I had seen the one you posted the link for but decided to go with the more traditional one because the knives will always be in the same slots so it's easy to grab the one I want. In that one since the knives could be placed anywhere I suspect I'd always be grabbing the wrong one, but that's just me.

Beware that Ceramic knives won't stick on magnetic bars

Should go without saying, but it was a surprise to me when I tried to stick my Kyocera knife to the rack.
