A fresh paint job.

One of the best ways to make a kitchen feel larger is to keep the counter space as free as possible—and one of the easiest ways to do that is with a knife grabber. At 15 or 18 inches long, this magnetic beauty (handmade from reclaimed maple wood) replaces the need for a large butcher block while keeping your knives within reach. Fitted with rare earth magnets, it's strong enough to hold up even your largest chef knife—and will keep your collection of sharps safe and ready for use. Choose from a grabber that holds 6 knives or one that holds 8 knives. The grabber is in an exclusive-to-Food52 milk paint finish to give it an almost-but-not-quite opaque white-washed look.

The knife rack includes 2 screws for easy installation.

6 Knives is 15" L x 2.5" W x 0.875" thick, holds up to 6 knives; 8 Knives is 18" L x 2.5" W x 0.875" thick, holds up to 8 knives
