TEORI Knife Block “SPLIT” Flair Pattern
Ask any home chef, and everyone wishes their knife holding block was better. The “Teori” knife block is both beautiful with its horizontal pattern as well as functional. Made of 100% Bamboo, this knife block is extremely durable as well as water resistant. Further design features include “breathing” holes on the bottom of the bock with sufficient space under the block for water and air to flow to prevent dulling, rusting, and bacteria growth. That means, no more moldy knife blocks or waiting for cutlery to dry before putting it away.
