Thinking About Knife Storage? Use Your Head

This image was lost some time after publication.

Your friends will wonder in which direction your life philosophy has wandered when they see this hand-carved knife block, a prototype by Irene van Gestel of De Meubelmaat, a design group in the Netherlands. This gal must certainly possess a macabre sense of humor. Perhaps this knife caddie, chiseled out of a block of solid limewood, would be an ideal accessory in Cellblock B at Sing-Sing, where those who are looking for an appropriate place to store knives might be inclined to use their bunkmates' heads.

I wonder if Irene does custom work, perhaps replicating certain heads of state, or maybe the noggin of that old schoolmarm who got your goat back in grade school or those G-men going through your garbage and beaming music into your head. Since this is a prototype, there's no price or availability announced just yet.
