When I use the toilet I am face to face with this godly creature. We stare lovingly into each others eyes. If only I owned a real sloth." —Chance B

It fits great on a counter or on a table without taking up too much space" —lolo bridwell

    Promising review: "This is the cutest and most whimsical knife block. It's is really well made and has a good magnet in the helmet area to hold the knife sharpener; it's strong enough to hold the knife sharpener without fear of it falling off, but not too strong that pulling it off is not a problem. I bought this for my daughter who is studying to be a professional chef and she loves it!"—Misty
