  • Rated 2 out of 5 by from Beautifully made but not for Shun knives If you want to store narrow blades, you can fit a bunch in this block. However, if you favor the Shun Fuji knives you'll be disappointed. The chef knives will only fit in one slot on this block. I have a number of Shun Fuji knives and I love using them, I just wish that Shun would make a block that fit them well. Also odd that they sell their steak knives in sets of four (we own two sets) but there is only storage for 6. Extremely frustrating product as it was originally marketed as the Fuji block.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great look, well made Perfect for my custom knife set, plenty of various size slots, looks really nice, seems to be very well made, and doesn’t take up as much space as other knife blocks of its size.

  • Will a 12" sharpening steel fit in this without poking out the end? What is the longest (not widest) blade that will fit?

    Asked by: amandamcs
    Hi amandamcs, As the knife block stands 10 1/4" high, a 12” steel is 2” higher than the block, so it would stick out. Same height would also apply to the longest blade slot at the top of the block.
