Wusthof Swinging Knife Block

Wusthof’s 8001 Under-Cabinet-Swinger Knife Storage Block is quite the mouthful. Let’s break it down: this knife block stores knives under your cabinets rather than taking up precious counter space, it’s namesake and main selling point being that with just the touch of a finger the block swings in or out from under the cabinet thanks to a clever pivoting mounting piece. Otherwise, it’s built from oak, holds 8 knives (up to 10-inches long) plus a sharpening steel securely thanks to a magnetic strip within the block (no, your knives won’t shoot out due to centrifugal force), and mounts with just 3 screws.
