Slim Profile Universal Knife Holders
These knife holders have a very small countertop footprint; therefore, they take up much less space than the traditional knife blocks. They are very portable, functional and have a cute, stylish design. Weighted bottom keeps the units from tipping. This is more convenient and flexible way of storing your knives compared to standard blocks with pre-determined slots.
The exterior is usually composed of stainless steel or hard plastic. These knife holders have a removable insert for easy cleaning and drying. The flexible interior allows you to insert the knife in any spot, while at the same time keeping your knives in place and preventing them from touching one another. The highly protective interior design makes them suitable for storing ceramic knives also.
Such holders can be easily kept clean and bacteria free. The best way of cleaning them is by hand and using antibacterial soap. Rinse under running water and allow time to completely dry.
