KnifeDock, The In Drawer Knife Block {Review & Giveaway}

KnifeDock logo
Before our children were born, my husband and I took all of the necessary precautions to ensure their safety. Locks on the cabinets to keep dangerous chemicals away, special knobs on the doors so that no one could fall down the stairs, the highest rated car seats for protection when traveling, and more.

However, as with many aspects of parenting, as the years have gone by, we have become more and more lax (partially due to trust... and partially due to laziness).

Even though I know my kids well enough to know that they are both extremely responsible, that doesn't mean that it doesn't make me feel like I'm not exactly doing a stellar job as a mother when I open my own silverware drawer and it looks like this:

messy drawer

Ignoring the fact that the drawer is a disorganized mess, what am I thinking with multiple sharp knives mixed right in where my daughters reach to grab their forks and spoons? Am I just asking for them to accidentally slice their fingers off?

Up until recently, I would have had to move the knives to a different drawer or put them into a holder sitting on the counter. While either of those options would have worked, I was thrilled to instead be introduced to a convenient, versatile option that has solved the problem even better: KnifeDock.

Knife organization

Available in an Original 6" x 15" x 2½" high size and a Deluxe 13" x 15" x 2½" high option (as well as Cutlery Tray and Utensil Tray designs), the KnifeDock is the all-in-one holder that is designed to fit every different type and size knife you own.

Whether you're like me and looking for more organization and safety, or you simply want a way to remove your stash of knives from being an eyesore on the counter, it only takes a few minutes to put your KnifeDock in place to do it all.

KnifeDock review

After measuring my mess of a silverware drawer and finding that the KnifeDock Original would be the best fit, I couldn't wait to get it in and start using it.

Right away I appreciated that this bamboo tray was made from sustainable and recycled materials, and the way that the large number of flexible, cork-like dividers ensured that I could adapt the KnifeDock no matter which knives I chose to rest in it.

KnifeDock cork slots

After removing all of the utensils and other miscellaneous items from our drawer (how many plastic straws does one family actually need??), I replaced our silverware tray and easily slid the KnifeDock right in next to it.

As I placed our knives right into their slots, I could already tell that the KnifeDock was going to be a great fit in our household. Easy, foolproof, adjustable to accommodate almost any blade, no effort required — this is my kind of organization.

In no time at all, my safety hazard jumble of a drawer was transformed into something so much better:

clean drawer

Perfection!

I couldn't be happier with the improvement that the KnifeDock as provided in our lives! In the time since its arrival, I no longer have to dig around for the knife that I need or worry that my kids will accidentally hurt themselves on a daily basis.

KnifeDock reviews

Instead, each knife easily rests vertically in the tray, allowing for easy visual identification to pull it right out, and I anticipate that each one will have an increased usage span from less times being bumped, banged or dulled as it slides around in the drawer.

Retailing for $29.99 for the KnifeDock Original, $48.99 for the KnifeDock Deluxe and $39.99 for the KnifeDock with Cutlery Tray or with Utensil Tray) this innovative and unique product can be purchased directly from KnifeDock.com, on Amazon, as well as found in Williams-Sonoma, The Container Store, and Bed, Bath, and Beyond.

You can also keep up with everything KnifeDock by connecting with them on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and more. Plus, thanks to their generosity, one person will soon be able to keep all of their knives protected and orderly as well, because...

One lucky person will win their choice of the
KnifeDock Original, Deluxe, with Cutlery Tray or with Utensil Tray!



A big thank you to KnifeDock for providing a KnifeDock for me to review as well as for one lucky giveaway winner. The opinions shared are my own and honest and if you really need to see more, click here to see how I roll.
