The Wusthof 9 slot knife block is of beechwood, a softer European hardwood. It takes up about 4"x9" of counter space, with maybe an inch of overhang in the front. Its slots are as follows, from top to bottom:

- wide slot for a chef's knife of up to 10" (25cm) blade length
- square hole for a sharpening steel of up to 10" (25cm) length
- two slots for narrower knives of up to 8.5" (22cm) length, such as a carving knife and a bread knife
- moderately wide slot for a knife of up to 8" (20cm) length; this slot is not wide enough for a full size chef's knife, but did fit my 5.5" (14cm) mini chef's knife, and would also fit a boning knife
- narrow slot, 8" (20cm) long; however, this slot will not fit most 8" knives and seems designed for the Wusthof 6" (16cm) "sandwich" knife
- two small slots, 7" (18cm) deep; these are too narrow for the sandwich knife, and seem designed for the paring knife and the utility knife
- short slot for kitchen shears; I don't know exactly how long this is because it doesn't go all the way through, but it works fine for my Wusthof kitchen shears

I used this block for over a decade, at which point it was replaced because I finally accumulated more Wusthof knives than would fit in this block. After all those years it was slightly dingy because I'd never washed it, and had developed a slight crack on one side that did not affect its utility (and which I only noticed when I pulled it out to measure the slot lengths for this review). It's a good basic knife block for a typical kitchen.

This knife block shouldn't have Wustof's name on it because the difference between the quality of this product and the quality of their knives (which are outstanding) is huge. Besides looking cheap, once it is loaded up, it wants to tip forward quite easily. That's not something you want to have happen when you've got a very sharp knife in your hand. If you flinch, start, jump, or whatever you could hurt yourself. I'm going to re-position the feet on the bottom to see if that will help. If not, I'll have to add additional support. Disappointing.

This is a decent storage block. However, based on 10 years experience working with wood I can say that this is not made of beechwood. It's some type of tropical wood. Beechwood is a classic choice for European storage blocks, butcher blocks etc and has a more redish appearance and distinctive grain (for example, see the pictures of the larger Wustoff blocks). This product gets the job done, but the description is incorrect.

I wanted to get a "compact" knife block for the Wusthof knives that I purchased and thought that this would fill the bill because I only have a few knives. As one review said, it probably would not be very stable if it was filled with knives.

Well the first thing that I noticed was it missing one of the rubber feet on the bottom and would tip over easily so I returned it hesitatingly to Amazon for a replacement.

I say hesitatingly because the quality of the wood and workmanship is not up to the Wusthof knives that it's supposed to hold. It's made with "slapped together" veneers and it is not even sanded smooth on all sides. I haven't decided if I'll keep the replacement if it's of similar poor quality.

I ordered a replacement to determine if the poor quality of the first block was an individual issue rather than an issue with others. Both blocks had quality issues. The knife slots pictured on the box did not represent the sizes and placement of the slots on both blocks, which can be an issue with longer knives. The slots on the second block were significantly crooked. Will return this as well. Wusthoff and/or Amazon should improve quality control.

First, the positives. I like that this block is compact because I don't have a lot of counter space. I also like the rubber feet on the bottom which keep the unit from sliding around. Unfortunately that's where the good part ends.

The top slot is the widest and can fit a 10" chefs knife. However, the square slot just to the right of it is a little too close, so the edge of the knife comes into contact with the plastic handle of my honing steel unless I'm super careful. Both are Wusthof so I would've expected the block to be designed to accommodate their products.

The other and more important concern is that the unit does become somewhat top-heavy when loaded with knives. It is stable from being tipped over sideways, but if you accidentally knock the block with your hand it has a tendency to tip forward.

From a cosmetic standpoint, there's an ugly and wide seam where the front part of the base (the part that's printed with "Wusthof" is glued to the part that holds the knives. For this price and this brand, I expected more.

I like this okay, but the quality is lacking - after a few months, the wood cracked. It still works, but not worth the money.

I think this product is a great and useful tool in the kitchen. For me it was a great start to my kitchen and it holds all of my wonderful Wustof tools/knives. I think anyone would see that this product is great and the price was very reasonable for it's duties, especially after looking for one in the stores. They were twice as much and I couldn't find the right kind for my set of knives. Great Product!
