I ordered the 18" fridge model with a custom whitewash finish. Came out great and is a wonderful space saver for my new little kitchen. Jill was great to work with.

About

Enthusiastic Cooks Deserve Better

Most active cooks invest in a few decent knives. Storing them can be a challenge. Counter blocks eat up prep space and leave you unable to see choices. Knives tossed in drawers are hard on fingers and blades.

There's a better way. Vertical surfaces. Walls. Refrigerator sides. Steel back splashes. Always at the ready.

This belief prompted me to experiment with designs, materials and processes. To search out earth-friendly materials. Investigate magnet types, shapes and configurations. Source beautiful natural stones and vintage glass. And get comfortable using a variety of shop tools. The formula looks like this:

+ sustainable base materials
+ industrial-strength neodymium magnets
+ variable mounting options
+ natural stones/vintage glass
________________________
= attractive modern storage


These details guide my approach:

>>> No trees killed <<<<
These knife holders are made from Plyboo, a plywood created with Moso bamboo. This super-fast grower resprouts after cutting and is harvested for years. Plyboo is certified by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) as a sustainably grown material.
By contrast, hardwood trees take 60+ years to mature. Once cut, they are gone forever.

>>> Sharp blades stay sharp <<<<
Your knife blades never hit dulling metal (screws, rails or magnets) in our designs. No nicks or scrapes to mar your favorite knives.

>>> Fluid magnetic band <<<<
Blade-gripping magnets are snugged in tightly to eliminate dead spots. The entire bar face from within 1" of the sides holds knives.

>>> Safe materials <<<<
Plyboo is made with a soy-based bond, not the usual formaldehyde-based adhesive. No off-gassing in your home and a safer product for the environment.

>>> Highest quality magnets <<<<
We use premium quality rare earth/neodymium magnets. Crazy strong, these magnets are in a completely different league than common household ones.

>>> Real stones and vintage glass <<<<
Inset semi-precious stones are jewelry quality. Also, cool vintage glass from Europe and Asia decorate some knife holders. No dyed and synthetic stones or endangered coral or ivory.

>>> Scratch-free <<<<
For magnetic-mounted styles, the beefy backside magnets sport cushioning silicone discs to avoid scratches, keeping your fridge sides pristine.

>>> Nut allergies? No worries <<<<
Knife holders are sealed with a hand rubbed food-safe finish that contains no nut oils (walnut, tung, etc.)

>>> Easy, eco-friendly gifts <<<<
For gifts, we'll wrap in a 100% cotton flour sack towel tied with red and white butcher's twine. . . . reusable "wrapping paper".

>>> Each unique <<<<
Made with natural bamboo, each knife holder displays its own grain pattern and color variations that prove Mother Nature - not a factory - was involved. Your knife holder isn't identical to any other.

    Every cook has a few favorite tools. For most of us, that includes several sharp, perfectly balanced knives. I needed a better way to store my knives and started experimenting with options. That was the start of the Blade Catchers story.

Payment
Blade Catchers accepts payment using any major credit or debit card through Etsy or feel free to use PayPal. I also accept Etsy Gift Cards, checks and money orders. Payment must precede shipping of goods. Questions or concerns? Here’s is a helpful step-by-step guide for making Etsy purchases: http://www.etsy.com/help/article/339
Shipping
Packages are shipped within two business day following order receipt. (At least half ship the day the order is received.) Shipments go via USPS Priority Mail which typically takes 2-3 days in transit to continental United States addresses. (For shipments to Alaska or Hawaii, please provide a zip code and I'll send you a shipping quote.)

At this time we do not ship to other countries. Knife holders are substantial and the associated shipping weights make delivery fees high.

Any non-custom item may be returned for an exchange or refund of the purchase price within 20 days of receipt if the item is in the same good condition as when sent. (All knife bars are carefully checked before they are shipped.) Return shipping charges are the customer's responsibility.

Custom made items are not returnable.

Additional policies and FAQs
Custom orders are happily accepted. Please contact me if you'd like a bar color and inset combination you don't see. Knife holder bars are available in 11.5" (cabinet side mount) 12", 15" and 18" lengths (wall and fridge-side mount).

If your purchase is a gift, simply write "gift" in the message section as you check out and I'll make sure the packing slip includes no prices.

Note for Refrigerator Mounted styles - to adhere properly, these knife holders require both a ferrous metal surface (test with a household magnet) and a flat, not bowed, surface (confirm by laying a ruler horizontally on fridge side). If in doubt, please test before ordering. Thanks!
