Knife Block

The STEELPORT Knife Block is for design-forward home cooks who want a non-restrictive, well made block to proudly showcase their knives.
Both highly functional and attractive, the STEELPORT Knife Block features a combination of steel construction for durability and strength, and elegant Oregon Black Walnut with curved soft edges. Our patented curved base design creates clearance to fully and safely grab the handle of each knife. Carefully placed magnets in the wooden faceplate allow a secure hold for each blade, while a contoured wood rest at the base provides additional security. Sized at less than 17″ height, the STEELPORT Knife Block fits under all standard kitchen cupboards. Its heavy construction with non-slip feet gives stability for the presentation of your finest kitchen cutlery. While especially stunning to display your STEELPORT knife collection, our Knife Block can be used to hold any standard kitchen knives in your collection.
