Unlike most magnetic knife holders that allow the knives to make contact with metal strips that can scratch and dull your knives, Epicurean's Knife Holder protects your knives from exposed metal, so your expensive knives won't be damaged. The powerful hidden magnets hold your knives securely to the face plate, yet allow you to safely and easily grab the knife you want. The unique dovetailed back bracket fastens easily to your wall and the built-in level helps you to align and install properly. The attractive face plate slides on to cover the back bracket and magnets, yet it can be removed and washed in the dishwasher if desired. 14-in long. Color: Grey slate.
