Wooden blocks are ideal for knife storage because the wood keep the blades dry to prevent rusting. The Wüsthof 6-slot Studio Knife Block in a dark walnut finish will look beautiful on your counter top as well as keeping your knife Series safe. This block has slots for 5 knives and 1 kitchen shear. A rubberized base adds stability to this knife block.
The two smaller slots are will hold those knifes that used frequently -- paring, peeling or utility knives. A middle slot will hold a 5" santoku knife. Two large slots at the top will hold bigger knifes, such as Wüsthof 8" Cook's knife and an 8" bread knife. A wide slot at the bottom is for kitchen shears.
This Wüsthof Knife Block has a small footprint, taking up only 3.5" x 9" of space. It is 9.5" tall. If walnut does not fit in your kitchen decor, this style is also available in lighter wood colors.
Since 1814, knives bearing the Wüsthof name and the Trident logo have been crafted in the world's "Cutlery Capital" of Solingen, Germany. Today, in a state-of-the-art facility, that tradition of quality is ensured as old-world craftsmanship meets twenty first century production methods.
