Store kitchen knives safely and conveniently while protecting the blades, with this attractive maple wood knife block by J.K. Adams. Crafted of solid maple from sustainable sources with a natural mineral oil finish, the block measures 9-1/2 inches high by 9 inches wide by 6-1/2 inches deep and holds up to thirteen knives of almost any shape and size. Slots are arranged in two neat rows; an upper row of seven large slots that accommodate large cutlery such as chef's knives and carvers and a lower row of six small slots, perfect for storing a set of steak knives or various paring and utility knives. The upper slots extend down the front of the block and are staggered with the small slots so that knives can be removed and replaced at an angle with ease. This design also allows the block to be placed under a low-hanging cabinet or other tight spot without impeding access to the knives. Unlike traditional knife blocks, the innovative open-sided design of this block allows for air circulation and cleaning of the interior, resulting in a more sanitary storage environment for your knives. Hand wash with warm soapy water and dry promptly. Manufacturer's 5-year warranty. J.K.
