The solid wood knife block comes with 11 slots. The set includes:
- Vegetable knife 2.75"
- Paring knife 4"
- Tomato/bagel knife 5"
- Utility knife 6"
- Chef's knife 8"
- Bread knife 8"
- Santoku knife 7"
- Kitchen shears 8"
- Sharpening steel 9"
Essentially, the set includes seven knives, one pair of shears, one sharpening steel, and the knife block.
The blades are made of a special "No Stain: stainless steel. The precision stamped Friodur ice-hardened blade provides exceptional sharpness and durability. Essentially, they are knives that you can use and abuse for years on end.
The handles are attached via a traditional three-rivet design rather than glue that might melt in a dishwasher (or get old). The contoured ergonomic handle is very comfortable and provides very good balance. While these knives are probably dishwasher safe, I would recommend hand washing and hand drying something of this quality.
On Best Buy, one reviewer said:
It's nice that there are 2 extra slots in the block for future purchases. The scissors are simple, not a 10 in 1 tool, that's a good thing. Not the same quality as their professional line, but they are still great.
I have a couple Twin knives and they are quite nice. This will certainly make an excellent set for years to come.
