How do you display your knife collection in the most badass way? Well, with a Spartan Soldier Knife Block which will certainly be an awesome addition to your kitchen. This knife holder features a figure of a Greek warrior that you can almost hear shouting ‘This is Sparta!’. If you still haven’t gotten over the movie 300 then this whimsical cutlery holder will surely remind you of that fateful battle between the Spartans and the Persians. Indeed, Geeky has never been this cool!
The knife block comes with an ancient warrior holding a shield in one hand. The shield serves as the knife holder with six slots in different lengths to hold blades of different sizes. It is handmade by skilled craftsmen to fit standard cooking knives in various sizes. Apart from the knife holder (shield), the figure’s other free hand serves to hold a knife sharpener. Moreover, the soldier’s helmet has magnetic steel to keep the knife sharpener in place.
