A beautifully designed and functional magnetic holder
An eye-catcher in the kitchen
The traditional company WÜSTHOF has been working intensively for many years on storage systems for high-quality knives. New and further developments, both when it comes to forged knives and accessories, constantly open up new potential for amateur and professional chefs alike. The new magnetic holder offers plenty of potential, in particular for those who like to store their favourite knives in a prominent place where they are close at hand.
The slim, rectangular holder made from thermo beech and a magnetic strip has an impressively simple, perfectly executed design to ensure that it will be a real eye-catcher in the kitchen. There is a visible 4cm wide magnetic strip along the entire length, mounted flush with the wood. This means that both materials form a uniform surface onto which the various knives can be positioned as required.
The interplay between the dark brown tones of the wood and the matt grey-brown strip results in an aesthetically pleasing and timeless product. The WÜSTHOF logo appears in the form of a simple stamp on the holder, rounding off an accomplished brand identity. The advantages of using a magnetic strip as opposed to ordinary magnetic tracks are clear. Firstly, the soft material prevents the blades from getting scratched - as they would on the stainless steel used until now - and, secondly, the entire length of the holder is magnetic. This means that the 40cm long holder provides continuous and safe storage for around eight knives.
The holder is remarkably simple to install - thanks to the mounting bracket on the back, it can be mounted on two small screws on the wall. A drilling template is provided for the precise positioning of the screws!
The magnetic holder is available now from specialist stores.
