Nicholas Blackburn is the designer behind 'CuttingEdge,' a knife block with a futuristic and multifunctional design. Designers have recently been putting unique twists on the boring knife block. Many of these redesigns have increased the aesthetic appeal of the knife block, but not its functionality.

That's where Blackburn's CuttingEdge comes in. Blackburn's design features a built-in LED light designed to provide light in dark kitchens. The light is powered by solar panels, with a power cord also available in case you find yourself working in a dark kitchen. CuttindEdge's futuristic look combined with its enhanced functionality make it perhaps the most useful knife block you're likely to come across. CuttingEdge would be great in kitchens in developing countries that may not always have access to electricity. Stats for Illuminating Knife Blocks Trending: Older & Chilly
