Outline

In cooperation with a sharpener specialist we have developed a new type of knife holders, fired in genuine porcelain: upright, it is a secure and practical knife holder. On its side it serves as a handy sharpener. It is ideal for honing knives quickly and precisely during everyday use.

Evaluation

The product has a unique idea that a knife holder is made of ceramic, and the users can sharpen the knife with its side casually. It is well-designed into the details and the holder can be removed to wash in consideration for hygiene. The package is also beautiful.
