Question for anyone with a Wood Hollow Knife block

Posted by mdm144 (My Page) on

For anyone that has one of the custom Wood Hollow maple knife blocks, I have two questions:

1. What is the interior width of your drawer and how many knife slots do you have?

2. How high is your largest knife (or 10" chef's knife if you have one) when sitting in the block?

I have two possible drawers I could use for knife storage. One is 7 3/8" wide and the other is 13 3/8". Both are 2 3/4" deep. I'd prefer to use the smaller one, but I need to know if it will fit all of my prep knives and if I'll have the clearance.

I have the same question out to Wood Hollow, but I figured I'd toss it out here and see if I can get a quicker response.

I haven't go the measurements handy but the slots are not quite wide enough for my biggest knives. They fit but don't slot all the way down. My 10" chef sits up a bit. I should have asked them to make one or two slots a bit wider.

Thanks, that's good to know. Do you happen to know what brand your 10" knife is?

I have 2 knife blocks. This one is 12.75". I prefer the other one, which is 9.75".

I like this one better. It fits all my knives.

Measured and the interior width of this drawer is 13". There are three knives I own which are not in here and one I am saving up to buy so it will be full at that point.

Perfect, thanks! Looks like I'll be able to use the smaller drawer if I give up one of my hardly ever used knives.
