The Bodum Knife Block has a unique feature that sets is apart from all of the other types of knife block. Instead of having slots for the knives it has tiny little “fingers” that grip the blades of the knives. You’ll need to watch the video to see what that actually means.
The result of this is that the holder can take knives of any size, rather than being limited to the size of the slots. This also means you can put scissors, pens, forks or generally anything that you think might need to be stored into the block.
