Zwilling J.a. Henckels 19-slot Hardwood Knife Block
Burt Wolf, award-winning and highly-respected journalist, has tested and approves this product. Following are his comments. Wooden knife blocks can be bigger (or smaller) than this 19-slot block, but its features illustrate what to look for when investing in a free-standing unit. Made of sturdy hardwood to be durable and stain-resistant, it has a full, flat base for secure placement and well-distanced slots for easy removal. Holds 9 knives, sharpening steel, kitchen shears and 8 steak knives.Due to a manufacturer's modification, the vertical slots to hold steak knives have been turned horizontally. This allows all styles of Henckels Cutlery handles to fit.
