J.A. Henckels International HardwoodFor those with a streamlined collection of fine knives and a need for one place to keep them, this ten slot Storage Block from J. A. Henckels should be a lifetime solution. This fine hardwood block has slots in a wide range of sizes able to accommodate many of the favorite blades you've acquired, plus space for a sharpening steel and a pair of kitchen shears.

The most common problems people have with knife blocks are cracking and warping, but those can be easily avoided with some simple maintenance and a little forethought. This block sits on rubber feet designed both to keep it in place and above any counter top dampness, but you should still pick a place in your kitchen where the block will be away from heat, water, and steam. Any of those can cause the wood to swell and possibly crack. Keeping water out of the knife slots is also important--be sure to wipe the blades off before putting them back.

Although it is pre-treated with a durable finish, occasionally you'll need to renew that with a light coating of mineral oil or another recommended treatment. Washing shouldn't ever mean more than wiping the block down with a damp cloth.
