This is such a fun convenient knife block to use in my craft room. I can quickly pop my scissors or tools into the knife block for storage without having to try to fit the scissors into a slot. The knife block is made of long thin plastic pieces that can be washed, if necessary, and will allow me to put scissors, pliers, pencils or anything else I want to put in it quickly and easily. It is a time saver and also brightens up my craft room with its fun colors. I love it.
