The multi-purpose magnetic holder made out of wood that your blades will thank you for!
The Mag-Blok can be used for just about anything* you can imagine. As long as it's magnet friendly you're good to go. You'll wonder how you got along without it!
*Holding power on some items such as flashlights are dependent on materials and thickness.
Because the Mag-Blok is all wood, unlike typical magnetic holders that rely on steel rails, the Mag-Blok can't ding or nick your high quality blade steel. Your knives will stay sharp longer with the Mag-Blok because wood is edge friendly.
Also, unlike traditional knife blocks, bacteria cannot get trapped in deep slots.
Mag-Bloks will keep your tools secure. With the holding power of Rare Earth magnets, Mag-Bloks are capable of holding heavier items such as large hand tools.
Holding power is dependent on shape, friction and size of item. For large items, such as heavier hand planes with a relatively small contact area, we recommend two horizontal Mag-Bloks spaced several inches apart. Real world results may vary.
The construction methods used to make Mag-Bloks are such that the entire block appears to be a single piece of wood. Furthermore, the magnetic field is continuous, thanks to a full complement of rare Earth magents, meaning no "zones".
Unlike typical metal rail magnet bars, Mag-Bloks are attractive, designed to accentuate and enhance their environment.
The Mag-Blok is offered in 12 inch as well as 18 inch lengths, allowing you to choose the size that fits your space best.
Each block is 2 inches tall and 3/4 of an inch thick.
We use premium solid hardwoods for all our MAG-BLOKs, finished with our all natural, food safe, Blok-Butter resulting in a renewable satin wipe-on finish. All Bloks now come unfinished (for those customers who may want to apply a stain) and include a full tube of Blok-Butter! All Mag-Bloks pictured have Blok-Butter already applied, your Blok will look considerably lighter when you receive it until you apply the included Blok-Butter.
As a natural product, wood grain and color can vary slightly, your Blok will not be identical to those pictured but will be very similar with normal variances. Furthermore, darker woods tend to richen with age and exposure to UV light.
Mag-Bloks are shown here with no finish on the left and Blok Butter applied on the right of each pair.
Each Mag-Blok comes with two #8 x 1-1/2 inch wood screws that hold the Mag-Blok to your surface. Two countersunk washers prevent splitting and leave a clean, finished look. Drywall anchors not included.
