Versatile and elegant, our range of universal knife blocks are designed to safely store your knives while complementing your kitchen interiors. We carry two types – those with magnetic plates, and those with nylon rods. With the former, simply tap the blade against the plate for it to hold. With the latter, simply slide the blade into the block of nylon rods. The rods are designed to hold the blade and prevent it from getting scratched, and can also be easily removed and cleaned. Stylishly store your kitchen knives with one of our quality knife blocks.
What is a universal knife block?
A universal knife block is a storage solution that can store a collection of kitchen knives of different shapes, sizes, and brands. By contrast, a knife block set features a knife block tailor-made for a set of knives, so that you don’t have to assemble a collection but can simply pick everything up in one shot.
Are all knife blocks the same?
No. Knife blocks vary in terms of the materials they are made from, and the method by which they store knives. For example, you can find knife blocks made from wood or from a soft-touch plastic exterior. You can also find knife blocks with magnet strips for holding knives, or those with blocks of nylon rods that store the knives in place.
Are knife blocks unsanitary?
No, knife blocks are not unsanitary. The reality is that as long as you carefully and thoroughly clean your knives before storing, your knife blocks will remain safe and sanitary. What’s more, some knife blocks come with blocks of nylon rods that can be removed, washed and cleaned.
