At House of Knives, we believe a chef is only as good as their knives, so ensure your prized possessions will stand the test of time by storing your knives in a knife block.

We are proud to provide a collection of blocks that will not only protect your knives from bacteria and germs, but they’ll also be kept out of harm’s way between each use.

Knife Blocks: A Comprehensive Guide

Knife blocks are a must-have accessory for any chef. Not only do they keep your knives organised and in one spot, but they also provide the convenience of having all the utensils of your trade within easy reach. As you look to invest in new knife block equipment, we’re here to guide you through the process and make sure you find the right knife block for your kitchen.

Types of Knife Blocks

When it comes to selecting a knife block, there are several different types of knife blocks on the market. The two most common types of knife blocks are:

  • Wooden knife blocks: Wooden knife blocks provide a classic look and are the most commonly seen type of knife blocks in the kitchen. Wooden knife blocks come in a range of styles and shapes, so it’s worth shopping around to find the best option for you.
  • Magnetic knife blocks: Magnetic knife blocks offer a more contemporary style. They are constructed out of either metal or wood and feature a set of strong magnets integrated into the surface. The magnets securely hold the knives in place, making it easy to access the knives you need.

What to Look for When Buying

When selecting a knife block for your kitchen, it’s important to make sure that the knife block you choose is the right one for your needs. Here are some essential features to consider:

  • Stability: A knife block should be stable enough to not tip over when knives are inserted. It should also be heavy enough to provide sufficient weight to the bottom so that it will not slide around on its own.
  • Security: Make sure the knife block is constructed with a secure locking system. Many knife blocks feature a locking mechanism that ensures the knives cannot be removed without pushing a button or pushing the knife down.
  • Durability: Cheque that the material used is strong and long-lasting. Wooden knife blocks often feature bamboo or oak, while magnetic knife blocks are usually made out of metal.
  • Quality: Knife blocks should be made of quality materials that are resistant to rusting, warping, and cracking. Look for well-crafted knife blocks with good reviews from previous customers.

Tips for Caring for Your Knife Block

Knife blocks require some upkeep to ensure a long life of use. Here are some tips to keep your kitchen equipment looking its best:

  • Clean your knife block after every use. Wipe down the outside of the block and make sure the knives are squeaky clean.
  • Treat the wooden knife block with food-grade mineral oil at least once a month to maintain the wood’s lustre and keep it from drying out.
  • Magnetic knife blocks should be wiped down with mild soap and water. Make sure you dry the block afterwards to prevent any rust from forming.
  • Store the knives in the block after use and never leave them out on the counter.


Knife blocks are an essential tool for any kitchen and can make your cooking experience more organised and efficient. Whether you’re looking for a classic wooden look or the convenience of a magnetic block, we hope this guide has given you the insight to find the perfect knife block for your kitchen.
