Look how pretty and organized those knives are in the top picture.
OK - who wants to see something scary? I am warning you it's not pretty. Ready?
Yup - it's my knife drawer and it's real bad! I think I really, really need to get my hands on that first Knife Dock. It would fit perfectly into my space and help me to get a bit more organized in the kitchen. Have you heard of Knife Dock? Here is a little info about these great knife drawer organizers.
"While other knife blocks utilize pre-sized slots, our universal storage solution sits inside the drawer and can accomodate almost any size knife. The patent pending SlabStab™ technology makes us unique. The secret is in the layers of flexible cork-like dividers that adjust to accommodate almost any blade and can increase the life of your cutlery. "
I think we can compare the two pictures above and see the many benefits of this great knife holder. Mine not only looks messy and unorganized but I hate to admit it, it is not at all safe. We try to keep the blades turned down but when you grab something from the bottom of the pile things shift in there. Also, a lot of times we will close the drawer causing things to jumble inside and a knife well get caught on something and we are unable to open the drawer back up without fighting with it first. I have 2 little ones in the house and they think they are old enough to help with some of the chopping. I am more concerned with them getting a knife out of that messy drawer than I am with them actually chopping. That's bad right? I think I will be placing my order today.
Do you leave your knives out or do you have them in a drawer?
Are your knives organized the way you want them to be?
