Lakeland Bamboo Fibre Universal Knife Block 3 "Not as good as I thought it would be" Kathleen 15 June 2017 I bought this over a year ago to store a variety of different kitchen knives. At first it worked well, but after some time it became harder to push the knives in all the way; some of the blade could be left dangerously exposed. To solve the problem I removed the insert. I found that some of the fibres had become bent and twisted, so I trimmed those off, washed the insert and when dry replaced it. It worked fine again for a while, but the same thing keeps happening and I have to go through the whole process again; so in the end this has not performed as well as I hoped. A note from the team We're sorry to hear you've experienced this problem and will be touch soon to help.
