Wouldn’t it be much easier if you could just take the knife and insert it directly into the table? it would be a very convenient and interesting storage system.

If you prefer to store your knives in a drawer either for safety reasons or because you simply like it this way, the main problem is usually that there are no storage systems that allow you to organize them one by one.
