A Spartan Knife Block That's Anything But Austere

By Andrew Liszewski on at

You can pretend they're there for easy access, but there's something primevally enjoyable about leaving your cutting implements on display in a knife block. It's like knights mounting swords on the wall of a castle, and it's also why this knife block that looks like a Spartan under attack is particularly amusing.

Made from a combination of maple and walnut woods, the folks at Missing Digit Workshop only plan to make and sell 50 of these at $44 (£28 plus $24/£15 shipping) a pop—which is pretty decent when you consider the craftsmanship going into each one. It's even got a spot for your knife sharpener, although this Spartan might want to choose another weapon to go on the offensive with. [Missing Digit Woodshop via FoodBeast]
