A knife block is a handy addition to any knife collection. What’s more, it is a safe and practical form of blade storage. WMF offers a range of different knife blocks in various designs: made of wood, e.g. bamboo, oak or walnut, or of stainless steel or plastic. The classic knife blocks have slots for the most important knives in the kitchen, a sharpening steel and a pair of kitchen scissors. Magnetic models and blocks with a bristle insert are also available. Both models are flexible and can be used for any type of knife. WMF knife blocks are available either empty or complete with knives from the Grand Gourmet, Grand Class, Spitzenklasse Plus and Classic Line collections. Whichever one you choose, a knife block is the perfect way to protect your knives and make sure they are always at hand.
As the name suggests, the Chef’s Edition was designed for professional chefs and for all those looking for maximum cutting precision. The idea behind the collection came about after a workshop on handling and cutting techniques. Professional chefs hold wide knives between their thumb and index finger just in front of the bolster – i.e. precisely where you would find a sharp edge on standard knives. This realisation led to the development of a knife with a smooth transition between the blade and the bolster as well as on the spine. As there are no sharp edges, the knives in the Chef’s Edition fit perfectly in the hand and effortlessly cut through even the thickest pieces of meat and the crunchiest of vegetables. Thanks to the seamless transition between the blades and the stainless steel handles, the models are particularly easy-care and hygienic. The series includes a larding knife, an all-purpose knife, a chef’s knife, a carving knife and a bread knife as well as a Chinese chef’s knife. All blades are Performance Cut, guaranteeing outstanding, long-lasting sharpness. Besides tactile and functional qualities, the Chef’s Edition also boasts a modern design.
