We currently offer one contemporary style knife block from Coutellerie Chambriard, one of our French knife makers. This innovative knife block is made exclusively for Chambriard, in Thiers, France, by a local woodworking firm. The block is not marked with the Chambriard logo and would look quite good with many of the other knives that we offer as well. The design is quite innovative and the open side allows you to see which knife you are reaching for. The vertical design also has a practical advantage; it takes up less counter space than a conventional block.
