Hi,

I’ve been looking for a cheap knife block for a while and spotted this at my local Dollarama.

Looks very sturdy for $4.

That's going to be fun finding the exact sized knives that'll fit in this.

Side note: Magnetic knife holder > Knife block

You found this difficult?
We’re you the kid that sucked at shape sorting toys?

Were you?
Assuming the front row is a regular sized steak knife, the slots behind it are going to hold an 8" knife tops.
I don't know about you, but I have a 10" Chefs, 11" Bread, and 12" Slicer.
Even if I were to try to cram my 8" Chefs in there, look at the size of the slot. The blade is 20% bigger than the handle.

So unless you have some knives designed for kids to go along with those missorted blocks of yours, this block is going to be roughly 85% useless.

I have that one, but in brushed silver. I really like it, the only problem is that your knife will scratch the surface because of metal on metal. One way I fix it is to use a fine grit sand paper once a year to refinish the surface.

If I was getting a new magnetic knife holder, I would get a wood finish one.

(NOTE: Ships out of the US)

I was cheap and bought this:
https://www.webstaurantstore.com/24-bla ... TH24P.html

Since you mentioned wood:
https://www.webstaurantstore.com/mercer ... 731AC.html

Amazon has a few, but you're looking at $50 for fulfilled.

For complete disclosure, I'm switching to this style:
https://www.webstaurantstore.com/7-slot ... 3KR99.html

Better on the blades as pointed out above.
But if you twist the blades off, it's not really a huge issue.
I'm probably gonna combine both solutions since I have some gnarly cleavers that won't fit.

I still stand by my previous statement.

Search amazon for IM-MGN5-CB

I bought it and have been very impressed considering it was sub $20. The knives that come with it are junk but the holder is sturdy with a strong magnet.
