Emo Design points out that the knife is recognized much more as a masculine object, further emphasized by casing it in bulky wooden blocks. The Ego Knife Block has been sculpted to accentuate the implement's distinctively feminine qualities within a standing sheath of graceful curves.

Instead of storing an entire collection of very different utensils in one base, this concept celebrates the unique and specialized form of each blade with individual scabbards modeled in elegant shapes and varying heights. When placed inside, the knives' handles continue almost seamlessly into the elegant shell of the flaring holders. The Ego Knife Block makes stylish art of utility and alludes to the finesse required to do culinary magic with these razor-edged instruments.
