- 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.
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.
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.

Solid knife holder , very capable for professional level knives. However, it would be nice if one of the slots could be larger to accommodate a thicker knife instead of the two... Read morePublished 23 months ago by Joyce A. Richards
I returned this. It was advertised as beechwood (which it is not) and it didn't look like the picture (how the Wusthof logo looks). The one received looked cheap. Read morePublished on January 9, 2014 by WiscoNick1
