Universal Knife Block Reviewed

Is kitchen counter space tight? Is a traditional wood knife block taking up too much of the kitchen counter? The Universal Knife Black may be right in your lane to increase functionality along with increasing counter space.

I found this alternative to the traditional wood knife block when shopping to replace a very attractive, but very heavy and large knife block. With counter space at a premium the Universal Knife Block caught my shopping attention and I decided to give it a try.


The Universal Knife Block comes in a three colors: black, white and lime green. The white and black colors are speckled to resemble marble (and actually from a distance the visual of marble is very close!) An up close inspection and it is evident the material is imitation and the block is in fact made of plastic.

Price Point And Convenience

The top of the knife black looks like a wavy grate. Knifes of all types easily fit between the "grates" with the handles straight up. This design is a huge space saver whether it be on the counter or in a kitchen cabinet. 

The block is very easy to use and fits all different size and shapes of knives.  The price point of twenty dollars much less expensive than traditional wood knife blocks. If down sizing or looking to increase counter space the Universal Knife Block is a very affordable alternative to wood. 


The Universal Knife Block has already become a favorite. The block has two homes: 1. On the counter when cooking and 2. In a cabinet to be easily stored away. I do not miss the traditional heavy wood knife block taking up space on the counter.

  1. The space-saving feature of this universal knife black is particularly appealing to anyone, like me, who has downsized from a house to apartment living. Less space means different products are needed. Thanks, Tracey.

  2. How awesome! I have 2 wooden knife blocks that I keep in a cabinet, but it would sure be nice to have this smaller unit on my counter to use when I need it. Plus, I love how easy it would be to take apart and wash.

  3. This seems like a very good option for someone who is downsizing or has very limited counter space. Thanks for sharing!

  4. This is a great idea for that small kitchen or camper. What a great find!

  5. A terrific find - handy to have on hand to when counterspace is an issue - looks beautiful too
