It features super-strong magnets that are completely encased within the wood strip, so they remain invisible and won't scratch your knife blades. 16 3/4"-long rack holds up to 8 knives securely. Industrial-strength neodymium magnets are concealed within your choice of wood for a seamless look. Mounts easily to wall and includes mounting hardware.

Works well and no scratches
February 24, 2015
Although the knives tend to get pulled into place near the magnets, it holds a great deal without problem, and mounts to the wall with no problems. Best of all, my knife blades don't get all scratched up which has been a problem with many of the other holders I have used over the years.
I plan to get another of the same as my knife collection continues to grow into more specialty cutlery.
Contrary to some of the other reviews, I have had no problems with knives sliding off. Perhaps this is because I mostly use Global knives which are lighter weight than most.
It is currently holding several items:
8 1/4" carving knife, straight carving fork, curved carving fork, 7" asian chef's knife, 7" santoku, 5 1/4" utility knife, 3 1/2" paring knife, and an 8" german chef's knife.
Pros: Durable, Easy to Use, Size

Very Disappointing
April 18, 2014
As the previous review (not posted when I purchased) says, the magnets are very weak. My Shun Ken Onion knives *barely* stay on and my 14" Sabatier slides right to the floor. There are 8 small magnets, so if you're not right on top of one, the hold is even weaker. To top it off, when mounted per instructions, the block has a definite wiggle and does not feel secure on the wall. The Messermeister name should not be on this Chinese junk, and WS should not carry it.
Cons: Quality

Weak magnet
March 7, 2014
We ordered this wooden knife rack to replace our metal knife rack. However, this wooden knife rack has an extremely weak magnet. Our 8" Shun knife slid right off it. It seems okay for small, light-weight knives, but not for real kitchen knives. We were disappointed and returned it.
Cons: Quality, weak magnet
