This isn't just a pretty holder, though. We really like its practicality. The lid is made out of wood, to hold the knives securely without nicking them up, but the interior of the holder is hollow. Unlike a butcher block knife holder, this allows the knives to dry thoroughly; there's plenty of airflow around them at all times.
