Wusthof knows that knife storage should be safe, convenient, and should provide a chef stress-free access to their knife collection. On top of that, they realize that many chefs want a knife block that catches the eye and provides a durable storage solution to boot. Acacia wood is known for its high durability and attractive polish, so Wusthof has introduced it as a component in the design of its Wusthof 17-Slot Knife Storage Block.
This model contains 6 steak knife slots, 2 slots for wide-blade knives (Santoku/Chef knife), a slot for sharpening steel, and 8 additional slots for assorted cutlery. The base of the block has been rubberized to ensure no unwanted movement occurs when inserting or removing knives.
