Sakura (i.e. cherry trees) take all the credit but bamboo is actually Japan's most prominent plant: there are literally countless ways the Japanese use it in their everyday life, from eating it to creating all kinds of beautiful and functional items with its sturdy branches. The Split Bamboo Knife Block, imagined by acclaimed designer Teppei Mihara and created by Teori, an Okayama Prefecture company with a history of over 25 years in the manufacturing of fine bamboo products, is one such item: a sturdy stand that can accommodate all your kitchen knives.
Made of bamboo sticks laminated together, the Split Bamboo Knife Stand comes in three designs (vertical, slanted, radiating) and you can take sticks off to allow for kitchen utensils other than knives. Combining design, functionality with the beautiful, organic texture of the bamboo, this block will stand out in your kitchen and let you display your knife collection in a safe, practical and highly Japanese way.
