Knife tray for cabinets

Tom2013May 8, 2013

I am looking for a wooden knife tray and I can't seem to find one at any local stores to look at. Does anyone have any experience with knife trays like the ones made by rev a shelf, Henckels, Wusthof? Doesn't need to be those brands. I am just looking for a tray for my cooking knives vs steak knives.

My cabinets came with one and it was awful- I bought a double wusthoff and it is perfect for my knife collection. I will try to post when on my computer.

This is the one I have (actually have 2 of them). I think it was less $$$ in the store than online.

I just got the Wustoff 13(?) knife one on Amazon. I decided to risk it and try their warehouse deal since it was less than $20. It looks fine so far, though it won't be in use for another 3 weeks or so.

Do you have Williams-Sonoma?

I linked it below.

It looks similar to the one from Target and may be identical to the one on Amazon but I have not seen that one.

We have had the Henckels 13 knife in drawer block for years. No problem with it, and I like having my knives in a drawer right in my primary prep zone. We are out of space for any longer knives, but we really don't need anymore knives that I can think of. We'd only get new ones as a necessary replacement.

I have a Wusthof. (Some knives in use in this pic.) I'm very pleased with the quality, how it fits in my drawer, and how the knives are stored.

Thanks for the replies. I will look at Target and I forgot that we do have a Williams Sonoma about 20 miles away.

Tom- I have the same one as Breezy. I picked it up an the local vacuum store for under $30.00. It is so much better than the one that came with the cabinets.

I think I got mine at BB&B. (It may have been Tuesday Morning, but I don't think so.) It's fine. It looks similar to a2gemini's, but has only two levels for the knives.

I have a bamboo knife "dock" from the Container Store - it's flexible and any size knife will fit - I even keep my pizza cutter in it (I guess it was in the DW when I took this photo). There is also a style wider than the one I have.

I bought mine at a knife store (House of knives) so if you have one of those around you could check there.

I bought the Container Store cork leaf bigger version of the one shown above. It didn't work at all for us. Really awkward putting knives in and out, took up waaaaaaay more space that needed, I thought it would be perfect since DH is a knife specialist. No, stupid waste of space. Get s knife block on the counter or a magnetic holder on the backsplash. A few good knives, not thrown in the drawer , good to go.

cidaintx - as noted above, we a very happy with our cork knife holder and find the flexibility it allows a great use of space in our small kitchen (not at all, "a stupid waste of space"): I guess it goes to show what works for one kitchen and/or cook, might not work for another. Hopefully Tom2013 will find the right fit!

Benefited from this post. Really like the Wusthof ones that I'm seeing used by several of you and don't think that I've seen those before here on GW.

I actually just placed my Amazon order for both the 14 and the 7 as I have a few too many knives! It looks as if the 2nd tier knife area will allow for paring knives, not just steak knives. Can't wait to have these for the drawer. Thanks for the suggestion.

I have the Wusthof, but I won't be able to use it until my new cabinets are installed in July. I did do a trial run when it arrived, of course! The intended drawer is wider than the unit, so I have some space to the side for the few extra knives. I do hope I like it - I am very much looking forward to getting 2 big knife blocks off the counter.
