Sometimes a geek has to have gadgets that extend beyond the study and the lounge. In this case, why not look up the Voodoo Knife Block for a striking addition to your kitchen. Designed by the Italian design guru Raffaele Iannello, the ‘Voodoo’ knife block, is perfect for any ladies that have a grudge against any men in their lives – or indeed, any would-be Gordon Ramsay.
It comes complete with a set of 5 stainless steel knives: a paring knife; bread knife; carving knife and a large and small chopping knife. Each of the five knives is held in place by a small magnet in the body, and the blades are protected at the rear by a frosted plastic sleeve.
The knife blades are made from Molybdenum and Vanadium stainless steel. Knives made from this material are considered sharper, more durable (in terms of keeping their sharpness, as it is a harder and more wear resistant material) and more resistant to rust than 18/8 (standard) stainless steel knives.
Overall, the Voodoo Knife block makes a great kitsch addition to your kitchen!
