My issue with conventional knife holders is that they're often covered in metal, which means that there's the potential for the blade edge to get a nicked or damaged. That's just simply not a possibility with this wooden one. Furthermore, the ones that are made of wood are often cheaply made with weak magnets that don't sufficiently hold large 8" or 9" chefs knives. This knife holder does double duty as being both uniquely decorative, and is a step up from what's commercially available.
