This knife block is a handy tool that is essential for any busy kitchen. The 13-piece wood block has an amazing light brown color and various ports that hold multiple differently sized knives, as well as useful kitchen tools such as shears and a honing tool.
It includes two separable pieces, each of which has a straight stainless metal edge screwed into place to prevent the knives from sitting on the wooden surface.
A polished wooden exterior enables effortless cleaning. In fact, you just need to wipe it with a damp cloth. Genuine wooden blocks, such as this one, should never be cleaned in the dishwasher or sink because submersion in water leads to it soaking up water and swelling.
Care for the block should be observed by ensuring that knives and other kitchen tools are thoroughly cleaned to get rid of food leftovers before they are stored in the block. Moreover, be sure to wipe the utensils dry before placing them in the block to prevent water from getting inside the ports.
Knives not included.
