J.A. Henckels Twin Beechwood KnifeTwenty two slots in this massive beechwood block from J. A. Henckels Cutlery allow easy access storage of a complete kitchen knife set plus sharpening steel, kitchen shears, carving fork and eight steak knives. One of the slots is even wide enough to safely stow a large cleaver.

The slanted but well balanced block is heavy enough to stay put on your counter top and has rubber feet that both help keep it in place and hold it above the wet spots on your working surface. Water damage is the most common problem with knife blocks, so the extra protection is very important. Although the block is sealed with a durable finish, regular rubdowns with mineral oil are a good maintenance choice.

Owners should also find a place for this block away from hot spots that could dry the block unevenly and contribute to cracking. Knives should always be put away clean and dry to prevent moisture from accumulating in the slots.

Many home chefs acquire extensive knife collections over the years, winding up with eclectic choices that work well but don't fit in the kitchen drawer--a knife block is the best storage solution, easy on fingers as well as blades.
