The WÜSTHOF Magnetic Natural Beech Knife Stand is a beautiful, easy and safe way to display your favourite kitchen knives. The stand allows you to easily access your knives and will never damage knife blades as you might when placing them in kitchen drawers. This solid knife block is made from Natural Beech Wood which is resistant to fungi and will not absorb water. The wood maintains its natural grain pattern while the stand has beautiful clean lines for a modern, minimalist design to fit with any kitchen. This magnetic knife block has six magnetic surfaces where each side can accommodate up to two knives or one large cleaver. The base includes a felt layer to ensure it will not slide or scratch the surface of your kitchen counter.
