Sharper Vintage

When a career change relocated Stacy Borocz from Atlanta to Budapest, the former Atlanta-based merchandise manager didn't realize the treasured opportunity she'd soon discover at the footsteps of her new home.

Stacy's passion for one-off discoveries and her desire to explore her new environs inspired her to seek out unusual and often overlooked locations, such as flea markets, shuttered factories, and military bases. She eagerly rummaged through each place for its hidden relics and delved deep into her ancient city's rich history by repurposing the antiquated artifacts she uncovered.

Like Stacy's other finds, this handsome knife block carries with it the thoughtfulness and craftsmanship of its original makers. The sturdy slabs of reclaimed timber salvaged from old buildings throughout Europe are hammered into a sturdy, barrel-shaped blade receptacle. Each solid wood construction is hand-sanded and affixed with sturdy, galvanized metal embellishments dotted with rivets. The wood is finished with natural beeswax or mineral oils for a smooth, splinter-free finish.

Deep slits in the block's top can house a range of different blades, from petite paring knives to extra-wide butcher knives. Keep it on display in your kitchen to ensure that the perfect blade is always within reach and stylishly stowed. Made in Hungary.
