    'Easiest' here means the best way to arrange the knives so they are all accessible, but this whole sentence is way wonky. It should read:

    The best way for all your knives to fit into the knife block is to put in the large knives before the smaller ones. This ensures the easiest fit for your small knives and prevents them from slipping into the filament of teh knife block.

    In this context, easiest means best or preferred, but there are other errors in these sentences. They should be something like: The best way to fit your knives into the knife block easily is put the large knives in first (before the smaller ones). This ensures the easiest fit for the small knives and prevents them slipping into the filament of the block.

    The fit for your small knives is what's being referred to, the way the small knives fit into the knife block. The rest of the sentences is poorly written, but you didn't ask us to fix that.
