The Essential 8-Piece Slim Knife Block

This richly colored knife block is the low-profile, high-quality answer to storing every knife you need in the kitchen. Chrissy designed this 8-piece set based on the knives she and John use every day, so the ashwood block is filled with exactly what you need (including a cleaver!), and nothing you don't.

Each stainless steel blade is taper ground to stay sharp. The ashwood handles feature a full-tang (meaning the metal runs through the handle) for easy control—and a damn good dice.

  • Use your santuko knife for perfectly diced tomatoes, onions, peppers, and everything else.
  • Bias-cutting with a chef's knife lets carrots and celery take on more flavor—try it in soups, stews, and chilis.
  • The short blade on a pairing knife is the key to creating fancy cocktail garnishes: Pare a wide slice of peel off your favorite citrus.
