Product Details


This sculpture in beautiful Elm also happens to perform extremely well as a knife block. The unique shape will look great in any kitchen, although if you are really tight on space also take a look at my magnetic knife rack with extra slots at the rear.

This knife blocks contain 7 slots. The longest knife slot will take a knife of 295mm x 48mm and the shorter one 265mm x 38mm.

Elm is a beautiful and very calming wood, used traditionally for the seats of Windsor chairs in the days when it was more widely available. This Elm was bought on my way back from a holiday in Scotland where they do still have some Elm trees, but which I am assured they only fell when at risk of Dutch Elm disease, so as to not unnecessarily reduce the number of these majestic trees.

I have said I do not do “backorders” for this, simply because I could not make another one identical. Contact me if you would like something similar.

The knives shown in the photos are not included.

Weight: 2.2 kg
Dimensions: 28 × 18 × 8 cm

Care Instructions:

For the most part, just follow your usual dusting regime and use a damp cloth if necessary.
It may eventually be necessary to give it a wipe with a good quality wood finishing oil. A free test sample of Osmo oil will probably be sufficient.


When I make these knife blocks I start by carefully selecting matching pieces for each of the two sides so that they will look good together. This one has a lovely golden-brown colour throughout.

Before I start, I try to select the wood that has a curve to the grain that will follow the ultimate shape I have in mind for it. Before shaping, when I have made a rectangular knife block, I may adjust the intended shape slightly depending upon what the grain is telling me.

This is the sort of detail you can only find from an individual maker. Even the best factory makers would find it impossible to give that level of attention to their selection of materials.
