Joseph Joseph’s LockBlock Self Locking Knife Block locks knives safely inside the block and requires an adult-sized hand to operate it, meaning that most children aged 5 and under will be unable to remove any knife*.
As each knife is placed inside a knife slot, its blade is held securely by the unique self-locking Cam-lock™ mechanism. Pulling on a knife only increases the force of the grip so knives cannot be simply forced out of the block, even by adults. Worried about damaging your expensive knife blades? You won’t need to as LockBlock has smooth rubber grips and surface, so the mechanism inside won’t damage your expensive knife blades when someone tries to forcibly take it.
To remove a knife from LockBlock the release button, situated conveniently on either side for left and right-handed operation, needs to be firmly pressed. But due to its position and the force required to press it, only someone with an “adult-sized hand” can do this. It should be pretty safe for children five years old and under due to their small hands, even if they figure out that it releases with a push of the button.
Although I wish the release button could have hidden to make it indiscernible to curious kids trying to figure out how to pry the blades off, it is still a pretty clever, albeit flawed, solution for keeping the kids off sharp objects.
