The WÜSTHOF 8 Slot Knife Block is a beautiful, easy and safe way to display your favourite kitchen knives. The tilted design of the block allows you to easily access your knives and will never damage knife blades as you might when placing them in kitchen drawers. This solid knife block is made from thermally treated Beech Wood. The wood is baked at 200°C which strengthens the material making it resistant to fungi and will no longer absorb water. In addition, it will give the wood its stunning dark colour while maintaining a beautiful natural grain pattern. Room for six knives, honing steel, and kitchen shears.
