I dream of knife blocks
After much research and hemming and hawing, I've finally settled on — and purchased — the perfect knife block to house the sets that I received as wedding presents. (Yes, that was six months ago, but still, I feel like it's an accomplishment!)
While I seriously considered the Voodoo Knife Block by Raffaele Iannello — it's quirky and a wee bit twisted — I ended up picking up this bamboo beauty from Crate and Barrel (on sale! Wouldn't have got that price six months ago!) which also features a great detachable section for steak knives.
And, in an added boost of productivity, the knives were all carefully arranged in my new knife block within an hour of returning home with my purchase.
