European beech with thermo beech* inserts. * High-temperature treated thermo wood is not only resistant against bacteria and fungal decay, it is particularly stable and durable.
Fine knives should not be stored in a cutlery box or on a magnetic holder because the resulting magnetisation makes sharpening more difficult. Instead, we recommend this knife block specially designed for Japanese Hochos, made in Germany according to our strict quality criteria. It fits seven knives with blades up to 270 mm long and 9 mm wide, as well as a pair of scissors. The solid weight provides stability and the pitched arrangement allows fast access. The surface is sanded and treated with vegetable oil. It is also suitable for European kitchen knives.
