A knife block is a place to keep your knives handy in the kitchen. Blocks are often made from some kind of wood with slits of varying widths and depths to accommodate knives of different sizes. Some knife blocks are made from plastic slots instead of wood. The main purposes of a knife block is to make your knives organized and easily accessible and to keep them from dulling in a drawer. Many knife blocks are angled to make it easier to pull the knives from the block, however, this style tends to take up quite a bit of space on the countertop. A cylindrical block will take up less space, but may make it more difficult to identify which knife you are pulling from the block.
