Knife Blocks and Sets Buying Guide

Knife blocks are used to store knives safely and securely. Knife blocks can be very handy in organizing a kitchen and are available as separate blocks alone or block sets along with different types of knives.

Different Types of Knife Blocks and Sets

  • Wooden Knife Blocks: Wooden knife blocks are available in different sizes capable of holding 5, 6 or 12 knives at a time. They are provided with side slots or holes to hold the knives. Also available are hollow wooden blocks, which are open at the top to hold knives.
  • Stainless Steel Knife Blocks: Stainless steel knife blocks are very stylish and durable. They are also easy to clean and do not break easily.
  • Plastic Knife Blocks: These knife blocks are made of high quality and thick plastic. They are extremely capable of holding knives firmly. These plastic structures are easy to clean, lightweight  and are generally provided with a non-slip base. To store knives, you can also go for plastic boxes with liftout tray, foldaway handle and clasp fastening.
  • Chrome Knife Blocks: These are especially good for displaying knives. For instance, a human-shaped block made of chrome adds a touch of humour to the kitchen! These knife blocks use a clever knife suspension system, with magnets inside each slot, to hold all of the knives in place. All the knives that come along with the set have plastic covers to make them completely safe for display.

Knife Block Sets

These sets consist of a selection of kitchen knives such as bread knife, carving knife, utility knife and paring knife. They may or may not come along with other accessories. Knife holders, knife sharpeners, honers, cutting boards, electric knives, knife bags and knife racks are some of the other accessories for storing and using knives.
