It's not like countertop knife blocks take up that much space, but...yeah, they kind of do. Especially if space in your kitchen is already at a premium, what with the microwave, commercial blender, food processor, electric kettle, and 60-second beer chiller already staking their claim.
The Drop Block installs underneath your kitchen cabinets, where it stays tucked out of the way when you don't need a knife, and then pulls down to display your complete cutting collection when you do. The Drop Block's hinged system raises and lowers smoothly, and its bottom ledge and bolted-on magnetic strips ensure your knives stay tidy and in place in storage.
In addition to conserving space, extended Drop Blocks also display all of your knives in full so there's no game of seek-and-find for the Santoku when it comes time to chop 40 onions for your Real Men Don't Cry contest.
Drop Blocks are available in Small and Large sizes, and few different finishes.
