Modern Knife Block

I've been wanting to take a knife skills class, you know, so I can cut and slice, and chop and dice like a pro. I think having a sexy, modern knife block like this one from Crate & Barrel would encourage such skills, don't you? Perhaps not, but it's still pretty to look at! 100% Rubberwood with white painted finish and 6 slots. Knives not included.

Modern knife block from Crate & Barrel: $19.95

P.S. Any local Utahns know where one might find a good knife/cooking class?

Please excuse me while I pay some bills...
