Wusthof Knife Block - Model 7262

I am sure many of you have individual kitchen knives and they don't all fit in a typical knife block. There are the infamous Kapoosh knife blocks to address this problem, where the knives are hold on by hundreds of flexible plastic rods.
Although most of the reviews for Kapoosh are positive, they appears to have some limitations.
Yestersday, I came across several innovative Wusthof knife block designs and this particular one catches my eyes. I thought may be a few of you will enjoy this:
That's the coolest thing, love it!
But - in my house I'd be trying to clean the dust out of all those slots - just my issue, I'm sure.
I have a slotted drawer thingy that holds around 14 knives and frees up the little counter space I do have. Here's what I bought from Chef's Catalog. (I have LOTS of drawers!)
Thanks Breadchick and iyc_nyc,
There are also the bamboo stick knife blocks:
Of course, one has to wonder why they are sold at such high prices when almost anyone can just cheaply buy a bunch of long bamboo skewers and put them in a $10-20 container.
Buy skewers about 1-2 inches longer than your longest blade. Here are 100 piece of 14" skewers for $1.39.
and here are 1200 pieces of 12" skewers for $21:
It is difficult to believe the below 900 piece skewers knife block really worth AU $165 (US $135).
Wow, that bamboo thing sure is cool, but who's gonna pay that kind of $$ ? Didn't notice the price on the wusthof thing either. I'm amazed at what city dwellers are willing to pay for things. I love my magnetic strip...frees up counter space, and displays my knives, for about $25
