One of the coolest innovations to the knife block we've seen, these holders keep knives in place with hundreds of bamboo skewers held within bamboo boxes.

Pop this soapstone wine cooler into the refrigerator for a bit, then place a bottle of wine within for perfectly chilled vino every time. The soapstone retains cold and wicks moisture away from the bottle for dripless pouring, and the wine stopper is handcrafted from sea stone.
