Great Idea

That's an awesome creation. I have that Chinese knife - looks like a cleaver but w/ a very sharp & curved edge. Always have to take Great care w/ that one. I still store it in the original box, your holder is certainly much safer for that one.

It is. I guess you can tell I'm a SMKW patron too!

Funny story about the stick. I had started drilling the hole and was testing the fit with one of my many freebie Big Sticks. I was carefully rotating the stick as I slid it in so I would know if it was sticking. When it bottomed out a few inches from the end of the handle, I started sliding it out the same way...

Hey Doc, that knife block is amazing!!!! I'm serious. Never let your wife show it to any of her friends or you'll be making knife blocks for the next 4 years! Seriously, it's beautiful and functional - what more could anyone want?

This I'm going to try until I get woodworking skills like DrThunder. Have you made it yet, Jeekinz?

Not yet. All it is is a box with skewers in it. I was going to angle mine, make 2 seperate compartments and have a dedicated holder for the steel.

I got mine already with the handle on it. Of the three I got, one was really nice. Like I said, for 99 cents each it was worth getting three for the one nice one! It's tough to beat a ceramic, and I like the design.

Next thing I want to get from SMKW is a few more laminated Mora knives. The ones with the red wood handle are very nice. The laminated blades are hardened to about 61 Rockwell and take an extremely keen edge. My dad has at least a dozen Moras and I've grown to really love them. I want to get enough of the red, wood-handled Mora's to use as steak knives.

Awesome block and a cool cutlery collection!
