Knife locker / Knife block

Knife locker
Knife locker

Various cooking utensils in the kitchen are dangerous for children who are very curious. Out of those, especially the cooking knife is the most dangerous or even fatal tool sometimes. In order to protect children from such a danger, a knife block which can be locked by turning just like a key is suggested. The knife locker has a concept similar to the one that a lock shall be locked by turning the key till the end. Locking the knife block by turning the knife till 270 degree to counterclockwise after putting the knife in it shall be able to protect curious children from the danger. Ultra violet rays shall sterilize the knife in the block.
