Knife blocks are boooor-ring - unless they're the Downtown Knife Block ($200), that is. A big hunk of wood just takes up an awkward rectangle of your already limited counter space, but the Downtown Block fits elegantly up against the wall or beside the fridge. The magic power of magnets securely holds your knives in place. Wondering how the heck wood and acrylic can use the magic power of magnets? We are, too. It's part of the fun.
