Boa Clam Knife Block

Just one more. If you love knife blocks but get scuzzed out by how dirty they become and just what exactly is
growing down inside there, here’s the answer.
The Boa Clam Knife Block was probably designed by a high maintenance person, but it has a certain brilliance: it is two halves of wood that stick together with a strong magnet. They can then easily be pulled apart for cleaning.

Made in England of sustainable wood and using “rare earth” magnets, the Boa is designed by Boa Housewares and won the RedDot Design Award in 2004. We found it for $90 here.MGR
