WUSTHOF Block Knife Storage, One Size, Acacia
Currently unavailable

All of my knives fit nicely into this wooden block- the slots for the knives are spaced well so I can access my knives easily. The slots for my longer knives are perfect so you don’t have to worry about the knives scratching the countertop.

Great Quality & Looks Great!

I received new steak knives for Christmas that are bigger than average size.…Steak knives don't fit all the way in but I made it work. It's quite attractive and holds all my other knives just Fine!

Great capacity!

Stores probably more knives than we really use and does so in a surprisingly small space. Really a fan of how many steak knives it holds on the bottom row.

Safe storage for knives

Perfect for safely storing knives formerly stored in a drawer.…

Easy kitchen preparing at your fingertips.

Finally all the knives out of the drawer. All in one place , very easy to get to the Knives.

Meh. Worth your money if you don’t have large knives

…Good value if you have a bunch of small knives. Only holds two bigger knives but my favorite chef knife won’t fit any of the holes.

Good deal

…My knives fit very well

Roomy, pretty, cheap!

great way to store knives

great knife storage, knives with in reach and no installation on the wall, liked it so much bought it for my kids

caddy knives magnet

The product met my expectations. Ecxellent. I recommend it

I see some conflicting measurements for product size. How big is it and how many knives can it hold?

My rack is 11 1/2” long and 7” from the base to the top. Longer knives will need to be at an angle to be held securely. Knives can be held on each side of the upright. I have 5 long knives and 5 paring knives on my rack with room for more.

Do people believe this is strong enough to hold Yaxel/Dragon knives. Pretty darn heavy chef knife.?

It holds my Global knives, my steel among other items pretty securely.

Holds Knives Well

This is a very useful magnetic knife block, it holds well but not so strong that it would have been dangerous. Love it!

Great solution for holding knives

Very strong magnet and slim design makes it easy to access your knives.

Holds knives in place

Best product for money

What magnet strenght has this block? and how many knifes could i put in it ?

The magnet is strong enough to hold large chefs knives and cleavers. It will hold knives on both side. Mine is holding : 1 cleaver, 1 kitchen scissors, 2 chefs knives, and a variety of smaller blades. It’s holding about 8 knives.

how wide exactly is the base?

4.5 in. I absolutely love this. It takes up minimal room on my counter. My Cutco knives love it. Their blocks were very expensive and didn’t have slots for all my knives.

Knife Block

I got this knife block because the one I had did not have slots for steak knives. This block looks good holds all my knives.

What size or type of knives fit into the block?

I pretty much have most of my knives in here... some of them are put in slots just wherever they fit.. at the bottom where the slots are suppose to be for steak knives - i use those for all the little paring type knives. I have long carving/bread knife/ chef's knives - japanese type knives.. for the inventory of knives I have= this block worked. You should check the width of the blades on your knives before buying a block to see if there are enough "wide slots" if you have japanese knives. the block is fine and I wanted bamboo. I have this block in a countertop cabinet so it can be closed away.. fits fine - I just open the door and grab a knife.

I have wusthof steak knives with blades that are 1" wide and just slightly longer than 5" (the "wusthof plum wood steak knives"). will they fit?

Yes they will fit. There are slots for 6 steak knives.

we love this block so classy and also fits some of our odd ball knives not just the Wusthof knives we have!!!!

Five Stars

Perfect for our mishmash collection of knives!

What is the distance between the steak knife slots? (I have stainless steel steak knives with thick stainless steel handles.) Thanks!

About half an inch. I also have stainless steel steak knives and they fit without touching each other.

Hi. Will it fit a 10" Chef knife, 9" bread knife, 5" and 7" Santoku? All of these knives are Wusthof and are required to fit into their own slot.

All of my knives are Wusthof and they all fit in this storage block. Hope this helps.

Easy to store knives

This is a little cheaper version of the original, and it works the same. It is a great product.

Store your knives properly

Took a knife class and they recommended this for storage. Works great!

Approximately how many knives will this hold?

It really depends on what type of knives are being stored, and how much crowding you can tolerate. It could hold a lot of smaller knives; maybe a dozen. It will fit 8 larger knives without too much crowding.

Can it hold small knives as well?

Perfect for kitchen knives. No holes to match a knife to. Just slide your knives into the protective sleeves.

Fits many knives

Great look, fits many knives easy to clean.

Great Storage For Knives

I bought this product after both my mother and my sister purchased it and loved it. I have had mine for a few days now and love it! Well worth the money!

So convenient

After YEARS of keeping knives in the drawer because my traditional knife block only held 6 knives, this is incredible! I must have 10 knives in this block from paring knives to a big butcher knife.…

Is there any issue with larger/heavier knives moving around? Say, sliding down to where I will store the steak knives?

No......we've put some pretty large knives in ours and they hold them nicely

How do these work with large serrated edge steak knives?

Fine so far i have serrated steak knives and a bread knife

After you’ve learned which knife to use for what task and how to take care of them, it’s time to consider how you’ll store them. That's where a universal knife holder comes in.
Knife blocks allow you to store your knives without mounting a magnetic strip on your kitchen wall or taking up valuable drawer space with an organizer. Because conventional blocks hold only knives of specific sizes (the small slot for the paring knife, the deep slot for the slicer, etc.), we prefer universal blocks, which are designed to accommodate knives of all sizes in any configuration. There are two types of universal knife blocks: those that use magnets to secure the knives and those that use a mass of bristles or folds or an open grid to hold them. To find the best universal knife block on the market, we tested some models, using them to hold both our winning and Best Buy six-piece à la carte knife sets (which both include a pair of shears).
Robb Report
Your knives are the most important tools in your kitchen. To keep them sharp and well organized, a knife block is a classic choice that can be as decorative as it is functional. Are you looking for an environmentally friendly bamboo block or a sleek stainless steel design? Does your kitchen call for an upright design with a small footprint, or can you opt for a larger design that conveniently angles the knife handles? Finding the right knife block that perfectly matches your set of knives can be challenging, but some designs are universal and can accommodate almost all blade sizes and shapes. Others are magnetic and work similarly to magnetic knife strips. To find the perfect knife block that will last you for years, check out our shopping guide, which includes all the factors that go into selecting the perfect knife block and some first-rate options to consider.
