Over the past two years my knife collection has gained a few pieces, and one day outgrew its block. I looked into purchasing a bigger block to store them in, but found the prices to be a little more than I wanted to spend, and the blocks themselves were kind of bulky and, well, ugly. So I brainstormed and came up with a new storage solution. I found a rectangular ceramic vase at a local house wares store and filled it with â€¦ guess what? Un-popped popcorn! The popcorn keeps the knives separated and upright, and won’t dull the blades. Iâ€™m pretty excited about my functional (yet stylish) knife block. What do you think? â€“- Rebecca F.
