Block With a View
Saw this cheese knife set in the paper the other day and was particularly impressed not by the knives but by the block itself. It's hinged. Why has nobody done this before (that I know of, at least)? It cleverly addresses my constant qualm about knife blocks—how to clean them. In this case, just open it and wipe it clean. Brilliant!
Unfortunately, a) it's sold out at present and b) I suspect that it only fits a limited range of knives (it's designed for cheese knives set, so it's probably on the small side). However, it's a great idea and I hope that they eventually produce the same style in a larger size.
