Shou Sugi Ban Knife Grabber
A Japanese technique gets sharp.
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 rack. At 15 or 18 inches long, this magnetic knife rack (handmade from reclaimed walnut wood) replaces the need for a large butcher block while keeping your knives within reach. It’s a new spin on a best-seller, finished using an ancient Japanese technique called Shou Sugi Ban. Through a special process, the wood is burned to its charred finish, preserving the wood and protecting it from the elements. Fitted with rare earth magnets, the knife grabber 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 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
