A 3D printed knife block

I recently got a few new knives, including a really long bread knife, and my old trash knife block didn’t fit them. I designed a new one.

Might be my longest print yet: 55 hours.

Printed in this marble filament.

In order to give it some heft, it has an empty cavity in the front of it accessible via a small 3D printed threaded plug. I filled it with cheap BBs. Now it doesn’t slide around and feels similar to its commercially produced neighbor.
