ATTD R N EYE Patented Sept. 5, 1944 UNITED STATES PATENT o FIcE KNIFE HOLDER Paul E. Gilbert, Los Angeles, Calif.

Application December 19, 1942, Serial No. 469,562

1 Claim.

My invention relates to knives such as are used in the kitchen, and has among its objects and advantages the provision of an improved knife holder designed to facilitate placement and removal of the knives by free and easy movements of the worker's hands.

In the accompanying drawing:

Figure 1 is a face view of the knife holder;

Figure 2 is a sectional view along the line 2-2 of Figure 1;

Figure 3 is a sectional view along the line 33 of Figure 1; and

Figure 4 is a sectional view along the line 4-4 of Figure 1'.

In the embodiment selected for illustration, I make use of a board or panel Io which may be secured to a wall, To this board is attached a relatively thick piece of wood i2 provided with a longitudinal bore l4 intersected by right angu-. lar knife blade receiving slots 16. .Both ends of the bore M are closed by plugs IS. The balls 22 are maintained in knife-engaging proximity by a coil spring 20 and bodies 20a which, as shown in Fig. 3, are located within the bore H. The bodies 20a are freely movable in the bore i4. Metal balls 22 are loosely mounted in the sections of the bores, which balls have contact one with the other in the absence of knife blades therebetween.

To the lower end oi the panel i is secured a second strip of wood 24 having recesses 28 in its upper face. The recesses are of variable sizes, as illustrated in Figure 4. I y

In operation, the recesses 26 receive the ends 01 the knife handles 28 while the knife blades 30 are pressed between juxtaposed balls 22. The blades 30 press easily into' position against the tensioned balls 22, and the blades are held firmly in the position of Figure 2. All the slots I are cut partially through the strip I2 so that the latter provides backing for the cutting edges of the blades 30.

In view of the rounded configuration of the balls 22, the blades may be pressed between engaging balls without harmin the cutting edges. While the blades are held firmly, the recesses 2i afford additional retention for the knives to hold the latter in orderly and upright positions. Thus the panel l0 may be mounted on doors with no chance of the knives being shaken loose as an incident to quick opening or closing of the door. Without further elaboration, the foregoing will so fully illustrate my invention, that others may.

by applying current knowledge, readily adapt the same for use under various conditions of service.

I claim: A knife holder comprising a panel, a bar attached to said panel said bar being provided yieldingly holding the latter in knife-engaging proximity, and a recessed means receiving the ends of the knife handles.

PAUL E. GILBERT.
