Erin has mastered the art of mixed media with these magnets. Combining rich, natural wood grain and the vibrancy of cast resin, these knife magnets provide a natural look and feel to your kitchen. This one-of-a-kind magnet can securely hold up to 9 knives on the super strong magnets encased within.

The Process from the Artist:
Hardwood branches are first cut laterally to allow powerful neodymium magnets to be inset at a precise depth. The wood and magnets are then set in a mold and cast with resin. After the resin has been set over several days, the entire piece is then meticulously sanded and hand-finished to create a satiny-smooth finish. The process required to make each magnet was designed, invented, and built at the New West KnifeWorks production shop in Victor, ID.
