Cruel knives

Thanks to an email sent by a young friend this morning—which had me grinning from ear to ear—I'm going to start a series of blog entries featuring funky home gadgets and furniture. Here's the first: knife blocks.

Inspired by the sword cabinet illusion of stage magicians, this knife block has a crouching man cowering in terror at the bottom of the box. A design exclusive to boingboing: A Directory of Wonderful Things.

"Voodoo" designed by Raffaele Iannello. Do I really need to say anything about it?

There's another funky knife block I discovered while surfing, but I decided not to feature it. Call me a softy, but I just found it too cruel. If you really want to check it out, though, click here.

These are laugh-out-loud funny. But if I buy one of these, I would feel compelled to keep this on display and not really use them in my kitchen.

So put steak knives in them so you can display and use. I think the "Voodoo" is perfect for anger management too.
